The most important question you can ask when buying a special occasion wine is, "How has it been stored since it left the winery?" It doesn't take much along the way to ruin what was an incredible bottle of wine.
Rest assured; all these wines in my private cellar have been in temperature controlled environments since they were bottled. They are impeccable examples.
Then the question is…which one of the expensive wines do I buy? It is funny when you begin to taste wines in this price range…because like lesser priced wines, there are some you really like and some that you don't feel are great examples. These wines however, have been tasted and approved as great vintages in their own right.
So buy with confidence that:
A. Each wine has been treated properly since it left the winery
Check out these fine vintages and make that special occasion even more special.
