Bill, my blog posting is for you. I too used to hold on to bottles for too long :( Since then, I have learned my lesson, got on top of my inventory of wines (using Cellar Tracker) and have input all drink by dates. Please - we must all live the motto "No good wine should be left to die".

Hello Harry,

http://kosherwinemusings.com/2012/05/16 ... ach-kugel/

The posting has my many wines and my dishes we enjoyed. Some were mega hits, including the 2001 and 2006 single vineyard Merlots (ortal and Odem) along with some duds.

Thanks, David. Very interesting and helpful post.

You mention BYOB night from the former WSJ wine columnists... do you [or anyone else] have ANY idea what's become of them? I grew up with John, we were confirmed and graduated from high school together.

Gotta say reading "Jacksonville Wine Guide" sort of takes my breath away.

I saw the two articles when they originally came out, and their Facebook page was deader than a doornail; however, they have a new one and it IS active:

In Israel, when the 2009 was released it could not be found for less than 200 or so. Now for the 2010 that is not an issue, maybe because they have yet to score it (by Daniel or Parker) and so have yet to force the prices higher - not sure....

I'd like to see someone spot a bottle. I couldn't even find it in Wine Route, and they're part owners.

A couple weeks ago, both Avi Ben in Jerusalem and Mandel in Raanana (who also has a TA store) had it in stock.

Mandel on Ben Yehuda in Tel Aviv: 218, Ben-Yehuda street 03-604-4672

Check out also Aperitif wine shop - Dizengoff 93, Donny Ouanounou the owner is also a friend.

I'm not offering you my own services as I'm sold out on the Kerem Ba'al (and I also know Baruch Mandel)...

Shabbat shalom!
