t says:  A weekend or so ago, g and I visited l and c who live outside of NYC in Pleasantville.  We made excellent time getting up there, so I was in a good mood.  g and l got down to business and did some work, while c and I were left to our own devices.  I knew exactly what I wanted to do … go to Zachy’s!

a pretty reasonably sized store ... and it's kept cooler-than-room-temp, too!

We did some Umbrian wine tasting (free!) and some browsing.  I walked out with yet another bottle of Napa Cabernet Sauvignon (I’m vowing here and now: no more pricey Cali Cabs until we drink some!).  But the coolest thing was walking around the “fine wine room”.

In this pic is a $15k bottle of wine!!

Perhaps a jeroboam of '05 Latour? or ...

... maybe a jeroboam of '05 Mouton Rotschild?

On one hand, yes, Zachy’s is nothing more than a liquor store …  but on the other, it’s a darned good one!  The selection of fine(r) wines is expansive; I could spend hours in there looking at label after label.  The staff try very hard to be helpful, which I like.  The prices for some wines are quite good (but some are ridiculous – $30 for 2009 Calera Pinot Noir? That’s way too much!) – so do some iPhone googling before pulling out the plastic and everything’ll be fine.  All in all, though, it was a positive trip.  Thanks for driving, c!
