I like to think of the average tex user as being a bit more  
sophisticated than the average consumer, maybe he enjoys to relish  
occasionally a bottle of good wine, a Barbaresco di Gaja or a Chateau  
Pétrus, and thus knows that the year of the harvest is more important  
than the year when it has been bottled.

The coming TL is certainly vintage 2006 and should be named as such.  
The proposed label 2006-07 or 2006-2007 looks ridiculous and will  
stick out like a sore thumb in the hopefully long list of TL vintages.
