How about a 1990 Weingut Günther Steinmetz Kestener Paulinsberg Riesling Spätlese, and a 2000 Nigl Riesling Privat.

I've previously brought a Steinmetz, but per the old posts it was an Auslese from a different vintage.

Yes please.

For those of you that will purchase when you arrive in NY, or are going to source your wine with me, DLRoads, or monitor; the list on page one is short on Champagne. Hint hint.

I'm still weighting the options, at the moment still holding the cabs on the list. If anyone wants to send bottles in advance I can offer space @ storage (temp. control). PM me for address. You can PM me for outsource, of course, or we can work shared bottle if/as applicable

6:30 - ? We usually finish up around 9:30. A couple of years ago, we closed down the place close to 11:00. North Square didn't charge us an extra time fee, but we should be considerate of the staff.

The evening will have lots of miles, points, and etc discussion. Note to new attendees, once everyone has some wine in them, we all mellow out.

We're even welcoming of those that are inter-married between airlines.

That sounds great!

I'm still working on my selection; probably a dessert wine but we shall see...

Good. We seem to have plenty of red wine, and I know the .5 organizer likes Champagne.


By the way, if anyone has to cancel, there are people on the waitlsit that will take your place. I will be able to refund your cost if your seat gets taken.

Understood. I will go back to my todo list, withdraw the cab offering and pick something else
If anyone wants to share/outsource/send a bottle in advance, please PM me. I do have some ideas/thoughts


fwiw, I was considering a '92 Catherine et Pierre Breton Bourgueil Les Perrières (Cab Franc). If anyone has strong feelings towards cab franc I can still consider bringing it. In the interim, first pick to be announced (in a way)- a bubbly rose that will be revealed after tasting it
