I remember last year I was in a shop that had a PVW15 at like 3x msrp and right next to it a Lag12 DE 15% below msrp.
    I'd take that Lag12 over the PVW15 all day any day.

    I haven't had the NAS Longrow, but I've had the 10, the 18, and the Gaja Barolo - these were all very good.

    Didn't see anything but the NAS. Will probably give it a chance.

    Probably the CV? White label with gold lettering or red lettering? The red lettering one has a big Cabernet influence. I'd go with the regular old CV. I looooove Longrow, though I've never actually had the CV. Supposedly it's pretty aggressive peat-wise.

    Swung by a store I have not visited very often in last couple of years. Found a home for a couple of orphans found therein: Glengoyne 10 & Balvenie FR.

    It's Bama game week! I'm very keen to hear your thoughts on the Balvenie.
