Almost 20 Years
Yes, the wine was even more lovely than the bottle looks: 1992 Clos du Val Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve, enjoyed with Susan and three Master Sommelier friends, Wayne Belding (CO), Laura Williamson (AZ), and Scott Carney (NY), during Greenville's 2011 Euphoria Festival.
Thanks, too, to American Grocery's Sommelier, Darlene Clarke, for a wonderful wine list. We brought the Clos du Val from our cellar, and Laura brought a fabulous bottle of Ökonomierat Rebholz Grosses Gewachs Riesling: superb! But we also enjoyed J.L. Chave Saint-Joseph "Céleste" 2009, Guiseppe Quintarelli Valpolicella 1999, from AGR's thoughtfully chosen wine list.
