Ooh, I'm sure the wine experts on the board may have a comment on this, while I agree with some of the points may be partially valid, my 6 year old can tell a white from a red wine blindfolded just by smell alone. My wife and I always get wines we enjoy by taste rather than price, but even I of no profound wine knowledge will choke on a 2 buck chuck in a blind tasting. My wife who is much beter can 90% of the time distinguish the type of fruit and flavors in a wine by smell. That doesn't mean she will pick a $100.00 bottle over the black box as her preffered choice for taste though.

Mike,

Those are some awesome photos! What camera did you use? BTW, I'm not at all implying that your camera was the only factor for this picture quality. I can see that you have much above average photography skills.

Great pics and wine collection Mike, the stuff you couldn't fit in your cooler exceeded my last Napa take

Wow, nice pics, Mike. That really makes me want to go on a wine tour. I may even start developing a taste for wine, too. . .

Thanks guys...
I use an Olympus 510. I found that after a few glasses of wine, I'm not nearly the photographer I thought I was....

I'm heading back down this spring for the V2V at Stags Leap. I have a couple friends that go to that every year and tell me it's a ball.

Wow, Mike. Those are cool pictures. Did you ever think about a second career leading wine tours in Napa or elsewhere?

I continue to be impressed and humbled by the depth of knowledge and experience shared here, especially by the wine guys. Awesome.

When I first saw the pictures of all the wine bottles, my first thought, no joke, was "Boi-oi-oi-oi-oing!" \:\)

So, are you channeling Mel Blanc today, Peter?
