Had a bottle of Realm's The Bard (2013) that I have been saving for our anniversary dinner. Great wine that we enjoyed, but could have used a few more years. Can't store everything forever...

I prefer red wines. At the moment I like German wine, Fritz Wassmer or Martin Wassmer. I love Rioja too, I just ordered a few bottles of La Locomotora Rioja here https://zyn.ca/ at competitive price. That's my favorite wine store in Calgary. You can’t go wrong with anything from them.

Orin Swift's 2017 Eight Years in the Desert is really good. We buy every bottle when we find it.

The 2013 D'Angelo Aglianico del Vulture is one of my current favorites. Most of my friends and family hate it, but the ones with good taste love it. It's very earthy and dry.

Was it good?
It was excellent. I expect it will be even better in 5+ years though.

We're big fans of Orin Swift's wines. Papillon, a blend, is probably my favorite red of his wines, and Mannequin, a very oakey Chard is easily my favorite white he's released.

I am not a professional sommelier, but I only drink young Chilean wines. I really like their taste.

Same here. My wife and I like Papillon a lot. I like Mannequin, but she isn't a fan of Chardonnays.

Just back from a long weekend in Napa. We enjoyed Grgich, Eleven Eleven, Jarvis, and Rombauer the most. Also visited the JCB tasting room in Yountville, where we sampled some excellent wines. Now awaiting a self-curated case from Grgich, and the equivalent of a case from some of the others.

Yesterday was my birthday and one of the gifts from my wife was a bottle of Orin Swift "Mercury Head". Pretty psyched to try it!!!

That’s a very nice wine. You can certainly drink it now, but if you have a wine cellar / fridge or a place to store it where it doesn’t get hot (maybe the racks behind the bottle in the pics are in your house?), it will be even better a few years down the road. Of course, you can always try it now and get more to store for later if you like it. Either way, I suggest enjoying it with your favorite cut of steak. (And happy birthday!)

Thanks for the suggestion. I found and bought 3 of these bottles at my local store over the weekend. Looking forward to trying them.
