On the lack of properly-aged wine offered at retail-

 

We have spent the last year or so making our first forrays into well-aged fine wines. Though Pat and I have been slinging juice for over 12 years, opportunities to dig into bottles that had age (and were worth the age) were rare. Making a mission out of it, we were delighted to discover that with a little bit of extra effort, well-aged lots of wine CAN be found through the somewhat hamstrung Ohio distributor system. Sometimes you find some truly beautiful, special little gems.

Like the 2007 Jean-Luc Baldes Clos Triguedina Cahors that we've got stacked 5 cases high in the back right now. Was $45, now down to $20. Retaining the weighty tannic power of its Malbec fruit (if not the sweetness), and developing complex secondary aromas on the bouquet reminiscent of purple flowers and potpurri, this bottle is an accessible and delicious introduction to the joys of correctly-aged wine. 

Cheers
