    That's just brutal. They're going to end up without the necessary enzymes to eat American food, and their first trip to McDonalds will scar them for life when they **** themselves....Ronaldzuma's Revenge or something similar.

    BTW, in Sideways, the Maya character mentioned that Miles' bottle was peaking.

    Anyone know what resource one would refer to to find such information?

    THANK YOU for posting that! Didn't R. Parker's site used to provide those pages to members only? I printed one a few years back from a one-day trial, but you couldn't get past his front page without joining up and logging in. I carried that thing folded up in my wallet for a year or two, and towards the end it was falling to pieces like an ancient treasure map or something. Got some pretty weird looks breaking that thing out and trying to hold it together. But what a invaluable tool when you're just not sure, and there's bottles of the same wine on the shelf--from two different vintages--and the peeps at the store are (bigger) dolts (than I). Yes, I'll be printing this toot sweet.

    Also... please add me to the list of Ridge lovers. At $20 to $30--and with all those bottlings--it's not a cult wine or considered high-end, but it always feels like a special occasion. Pulling one out to open and seeing that label brings a certain anticipation because you just KNOW you're in for something special.

    I'm bringing this thread back to life for two reasons:

    1) I recently did a tour of the Santa Ynez Valley

    &

    2) I'm drinking a hell of a lot of wine lately. Not necessarily good wine but it's wine nonetheless.

    did I mention I have an affinity for Agrapart 2000 Mineral Champagne?

    did i mention the owner of my wife's shop gave me two bottles tonight for helping him out the last 2 days with computer ****?

    Tomorrow night, I see some Mineral in my future.

    Where did you go in Santa Ynez? My wife and I, as well as some friends, go up there at least a few times a year.

    I'm usually not that into wine, but I was wine tasting in Los Olivos a few weeks ago and had some really good Pinot Gris.

    Was my first trip to the area and I did the whole 'Sideways' tour.
    Went down Santa Rosa road first, hit the new Sanford winery, Lafond, then the old Sanford Winery now called Alma Rosa.
    Went to the old Windmill Hotel, noted the locations of AJ Spurs and the Hitching Post, then went to the Ostrich Farm before checking in at Solvang. Afterwards ate at the Hitching Post. Great food and I had the Highliner, of course.
    Next day played 9 holes of golf at the Alisal River course, ate at the Solvang Restaurant, then checked out Kalyra, the Santa Ines Mission and Gainey before heading north up Foxen Canyon Road.
    It got too late to make it to Foxen, but coming south, hit Zaca Mesa, Fess Parker and Firestone before eating at the Los Olivos Cafe and Wine Merchant.
    Next day ate at Split Pea Andersons before heading back home.
