The following waitlisters are DYKWAI. FYI, WineDo is Sunday June 11, not this coming weekend.

There hasn't been any movement on the list. Everyone is coming. (poo-poo).

Wine Geeks (Dan, DL etc.) make a list, a two column list in excel with one column being varietals. Excel will even assign numbers for you.

Buy a spot at the Do, get a number. That is the wine you must bring.

Better than a random system by a wide margin. You get wine that actually works with food which is after all why it exists.

This is an interesting idea, and one I'd like to explore more. I think the 30% Champagne is a little on the high side, based on this year; where I think 20% is more likely. I think we have some time to work out the details.

If I read the thread correctly, the inventory is four bubbles. All bubbles that I am aware of are at least 10 years old, and all bubbles are from champagne (there is one exception). There should be something for everyone- at least 10 years, at least 20, at least rose, at least...

No Bubbles!

At Ozfest the monitors convinced me to bring a "good 'big' Aussie Red" (But not from the Hunter Valley ).

So I will be bringing a 2001 Kilikanoon Oracle Shiraz from the Clare Valley.

A friend of mine posted a note on this wine on Cellartracker.

Decanted 1 hour. Pretty big, pretty fruity and pretty good. Beautiful aromas of both red and black fruits. Great mouthfeel with completely resolved tannins. Fruit is starting to mature and not a lot of nuance, not sure if it will ever come with this wine. But very, very good now if your in the mood for a larger scaled wine. Paired great with sous vide New Yorkers. Last bottle and glad I cellared.

The Nigl isn't a dessert wine--let's move it up top after the champagnes. We may also want to check the Steinmetz after opening to see how it's going, may not be a dessert wine at this point. Besides, itsaboutthejourney's wine will be lonely.

The OP went up on January 22.

I can't begin to tell you how many people say to me why didn't I remind them? Excuse me; just because you don't read here as often as you once did, don't blame me when there's no room at the table.

The Nigl gets good reviews on Cellartracker. Updated.

We are bringing a 2007 Produttori del Barbaresco Riserva Montefico.

Also if I may hijack this thread for a moment, I'm organizing a Welsh brunch in Brooklyn for the AW5B project (link in sig) on Sunday morning. Details forthcoming in that thread.

I know, I know. I'm just giving you a hard time. I'll see you all in January, assuming the dinner doesn't fall on one of the weekends I'm planning to be in Japan.
