The Willamette Valley is the replacement. It tastes good but it isn't as good IMO as the original with the copper label. I was told the older one was wooden casks and mixed grapes. I personally don't think that one can say a wine is great or not since flavors that appeal are so personal.

I have five cases left of the old one, two bottles were empty of it and one of the Willamette Valley the next morning.

Funny thing is I have their new phone headed my way, quad 4K cameras that will shoot/stream live 3D and has a glasses free 3D screen. They are using the term H4V and Holographic but most people that have seen it says its 3D

There are actually some video things on the horizon other than the modular screen walls that look promising.

I assume you mean other display tech devices?


I am aware of CLEDIS and similar modular LED wall panel tech, which I thought was the consensus "next great thing" for most home theaters.

Whatever the heir apparent large screen display tech will be, some of us will prefer front projectors just for nostalgic theater authenticity

Yea, I think this is going to change everything. Some of it will be great some not so great. Fact is a dark room where your attention is focused only on the screen, I believe ,will be lost. As so much going on I think it could be just a sort of free for all with devices and the film. I think shortly after theaters will begin to disappear at a rate that we hadn't seen for some time.

My escape is that sanctuary when I close the door and the lights go down.

Had to look it up not familiar with Dr Strange. Certainly some similarities including being larger inside than it would appear from the outside, a labyrinth of rooms with all the additions we've put on and magical places within ...my theater.

You need to watch Dr Strange
https://www.amazon.com/Doctor-Strang...rds=dr+strange

Amazing visuals.
Cool scifi ending.
Even more amazing there is no 4K UHD disc release!?

If you are into Eastern Hindu/Buddhist/astral philosophies, Dr Strange is your superhero
