Ah El Ag, are you familiar with Don Balbino? About to open a 94 reserva - the 87 gran reserva is one of the best wines I have ever had but completely inconsistent - one bottle brilliant the next awful. The pleasure on a good one is intense but having had so bad good ones - I can no longer deal with the disappointment.

changed my mind - will wait to drink it with someone. Opened a Ramon Bilbao 2001 reserva - nothing special but consistent and good value under a tenner

I don't think I am. Do you mean that some vintages are much better than others or that it's erratic within a same vintage?

I went to the country fair in Blindley Heath yesterday afternoon. I bought a bottle of Oxted-brewed, non-alcoholic, dark ginger off of one of the stalls. With several lumps of ice it goes down an absolute treat.

I also tried some fresh lemonade. As the sugar rushed around my head, just for a few seconds I felt quite normal, well at least until another powerful wave of hangover came over me!

bizarrely erratic within the same vintage, there might be some 'optimum' age to drink issues or corkage problems. But of the first 3 bottles I had one was good two were brilliant, on ordering more one was good two were awful, my colleague who I bought the wine with had a very similar experience.

Italian Merlot. Tastes just like Chianti to me. It's only 12 percent though which is quite weak by today's standards.

I have only got one bottle of wine left in the house. I really fancy opening it but its a Domaine de la Vougeraie Les Petits Noizons 2005.

At about 32 a bottle it seems a bit expensive to guzzle tonight on my own.

I am tempted

I would be honoured (although I think AJ above us is a sure bet) to appear there but sadly this is just the name of a bottle of wine rather than my inane rambling.

Anyway, the bottle is open now and I am preparing for my first sip.
