    Can't you recognize a bona fide collectors item, Jason?

    BTW the worst wine I have ever tasted was from the Great Wall of China.

      I've always had a sneaking suspicion that there must be a limit to making vines struggle.

      Hansen were showing their wines at the London Wine Fair this month. I tasted two vintages of their Cabernet Gernischt (Carmenere) and their '2009 Cotes du Fleuve Jaune du Desert de Gobi (C Sauv, C Gernischt, C Franc & Merlot blend)

      Unfortunately they were unpleasant.
