They need to make a message icon up there for "blissed-out grin."

This is the fourth bottle of a 6 pack I got for $19 a pop (I just searched to see what recent vintages are going for, and suffice it to say I won't be able to get more of this until Claire's done with med school...)

The last 3 bottles have varied from good to very good, though the most recent one before tonight was a bit long in the tooth.
Not so with this one...

This bottle is quite simply one of the best wines I have ever tasted.

Rich, complex, perfectly balanced, shows beautifully in both fruit and secondary flavors, nose-stuck-in-the-glass fragrance and equally impressive to the tongue. This is just stunning wine.

Nicely expressive note.

Pray tell ole VH what was the price then and now? WW

Well, Winoweenie, it's hard to say what it was. I got them for $19, but I think it was after a distributor dump. Looks like they retailed around twice that normal retail. The real unfortunate thing is that recent vintages have been $70+ up to triple-digits. [img][/img]

Here's an old article from wineanorak on jermann's stuff.

For a final testament to the quality we're talking, I don't generally like much oak in my whites at all, and this dude had major oak (10 mo. Slovenian), and still knocked me out.
