I visited Ron Saiki of Harvest Ranch Market and Jonathan’s yesterday. Let me tell you something- I always knew Ron had an amazing palate and that he and I were kindred spirits in the wine geek department- but I had never been inside his Del Mar Harvest Ranch wine department before yesterday. I was completly impressed! As you can see in the photo above, Ron has curated MULTIPLE bottles of an entire vertical of Chateau Musar from 1994-2000! This famous Lebanese winery is notoriously hard to find, and often very expensive. Pricing here is competetive (reasonable even!). On Ron’s advice I picked up the ’97 and ’98 (more on these when I open them…)
Harvest Ranch Market in La Jolla. Try not to get lost in there!
