Two quicks things
1. Evan, I was given a 1992 Dominus a few years ago as a gift and was wondering when to open it. But it is a 750 not a magnum. Based on the 1991, do you think I should hold or drink?
2. Lenn, that Perpetual IPA was an August release so you might have not be drinking it under its freshness window. But Nugget Nectar is coming out in a few weeks I think so I wouldn't worry:) If you can still find any around, I would recommend Lagunitas Sucks Holiday Ale for your IPA fix. It is amazing.

Dan - I could only guess that, given the vintage, the time is now. Choose a nice setting or evening and crack it.

If I remember correctly, I tasted Dr. Frank's 2008 Cuvee d'Amour without being overly impressed. But I do remember thinking the 2007 was excellent. I was at the winery that day with a friend who hunts, and after a sip we both turned to each other and said, "Venison." That bottle is earmarked for the first deer tenderloin of 2014.

Dan: That's a great point that I hadn't thought of. IPAs are always best fresh, after all.

Will keep an eye out for that Lagunitas...but in the meantime, I'll focus on Firestone Walker's Double Jack :)

Ryan - Oh, venison! What a great idea. It screams for it.
