  1. I searched and didn't see a thread. Anyone open an '08 recently??

    I had an '08 about a year ago and really enjoyed the way it's matured.... I'm just not certain how much longer they should be aged. Any recent tastings???


    Also - what's the 1st yr bottled?

    2006 was the first year it was released. 2008 was the second. Since then it has been released annually. in December.

    That's good news about your 2008. I have a couple 2009's that I've been nervous about.
  3. In another thread, I had posted that I opened a 08 and an 09 a couple weeks ago. The 2008 held up much better then the 2009 IMO. I would drink the 09 sooner then later IMO of course. I have a 2010 that I will drink in the next year or so.

    Cheers!

    I have the same feelings about my '09. Going to be doing a '09-'12 vert within the next month which I'm pretty excited about
