I was going to bring a sticky but now, the notion of contributing to a Truly Great Bottle has its appeal, so please let me go in with you guys on one. Dan: that means we may be deficient in dessert wines, sorry.

Cellar, well, I'll tell you a story when we see each other.

I assure you that we are well aware of our host's requirements and that the offer to our friend violist was made with this in mind. I do not want to make a big deal of this, but please do not cast aspersions against those who have done nothing to deserve it. If our host has an issue with the actions or behavior of one of his guests, he would be well within his rights to let that party know directly and it will be dealt with in an adult manner.

I don't like ranting on these threads. Anyone that organizes DO's knows it's a labor of love. Aggravation goes with the territory, and organizers know this. The particular WineDo has had multiple comings and goings this year. yeah I know. Stuff happens. <end Rant>.
Dear old friends. I posted my one and only rant upthread. This has been my only issue, and as my daughter is fond of saying... end of discussion.

Looking forward to seeing everyone Sunday at 6:30.

I'm going to add stockmanjr and plainsman to the list. They're going to confirm Sunday morning. This will bring the list to 22 attendees. Looks like $2.00 per person additional will be needed.

stockmanjr and plainsman are confirmed.

Plainsman will bring a 2009 Bedrock Heirloom red wine from Sonoma. Howie will bring something from his trip to New Zealand.

The final extra cost, sorry for all the drama, is an extra dollar. $1.00.

See you at 6:30.

Apologies to Dan for the late change but when I went into my stash I found a syrah that deserved comparison to the Red Willow and St. Henri. It is a Long Shadows Sequel 2009 which we liked so much in the tasting room but never found again. So the Conflict will sit for another year or two and we will try to taste the three syrahs back-to-back-to-back.

Yes aspersions should not be cast. Good thing they werenít. Just noting that the rules laid out for all are there for, well, all. I guess some may feel otherwise, but that is not my way. No biggie though, Iím sure it all worked out.

As always, we had a great time. Many thanks to Dan for all the work he puts in on this stuff. Next time I am meeting him, I will be bringing him a loaf from Orwashers.

Thanks again, Dan, and all the participants! I arrived a bit late (~7:00) but food orders had not yet been placed, nor had wine yet been served.

The filet mignon was as delicious as ever, the wine was all very good, and the company was convivial as always.
