Many social platforms today use the term "social" (as an adjective) to describe the value they would like their platforms to provide. I feel many fall short. You have loads of friends on the other platforms; yet, they are friends of nobody, really. I consider Delectable to be different. @Bill Bender spoke of this so eloquently a while back. My prose in no way could ever rival a Cambridge Don, but I'd like to tip my hat to the points that he made. First, I have made many close friends here; you know who you are. I can't say that for LinkedIn, Facebook, Twitter, et al? Wine is sometimes considered an odd, and somewhat obscure passion. But I find clarity amongst this obscurity, because of your posts and scores that you share. But I always find gems, such as this one shared by Paul T. $5 from K&L, its criminal! Most of the peeps I follow share great tips, like this one! So for this reason, I thank Delectable for providing the opportunity to expand my true network of friends, and grow my knowledge of fine wines. Renovation update - second staircase has been removed. Additional framing has been installed to support the sheetrock behind the 2nd staircase. With any luck the second staircase will be installed just before thanksgiving. — 5 days ago

@Ron R well said. I think the thing that differentiates Delectable is we all share the same passion for wine and genuinely want to share reference points with one another so we all get collectively smarter. As you have so eloquently pointed out, you don’t have to spend a fortune to find a bottle of wine you really enjoy. As long as it continues to be about sharing knowledge for the greater good this will continue to be a place to build friendships.

@Peter Zandbergen, Thank you so much!!! I love Belgium. I lived in Waterloo (ex-pat ghetto) for a year or so. I have promised to take my wife there, soon. When we plan our trip, I reach out to you.

Château d'Oupia

Minervois Oppius Syrah 2016

Dominant Syrah. Another wine of truth that respects the fruit and the terroir without trying to constrain them. Tasty, racy, intense nose with aromas of black fruits and chocolate. powerful mouth with notes of leather. powerful but well-melted tannins, silky texture. nice minty freshness. — 16 days ago

Le Vin Maghani Saint-Chinian 2014

Killer. Rich in red and black fruit, in herbs and incense spices, rich in body. Good lift from the acid. I wish I had had the patience to let it breathe for longer but it was heady out of the gate. Paired w Live/Dead. — 4 days ago

Mouressipe (Alain Allier)

Cuvée Galapia Red Blend

off the beaten track. it is a wine both avant-garde and ancestral. 100% 100% Mourvedre, 100% natural and byodinamic. No sulphite. It will delight the curious in search of authenticity, lovers of difference, demanding palates. Beautiful author wine. — a month ago
