The most valuable wine collection in the world is reported to belong to one Milestii Mici of Moldova who claims to have 1.5 million bottles lying peacefully in his cellar.
Although I have not tried this wine myself, I have had it recommended to me so many times that I should mention it here because it is currently one of the Chairman’s Selections at PA State Liquor Stores. It’s the 2007 Bommarito, a Napa Cabernet made by the good folks at Whitehall Lane who consistently turn out good cabs year after year. At the mark-down price of $13.99 it won’t last long and it won’t be back once it’s gone.
Speaking of bargains across the river, the PLCB is practically giving away magnums of 2004 Screaming Eagle Cabernet Sauvignon at the bargain price of $5,999.00. If you have any money left after grabbing one or two of these, pick up a few Bommarito’s!
This next little tidbit is actually important enough to merit its own post so the least I can do is change my color to emphasize this.
