|Region:||Italy » Tuscany » Brunello Di Montalcino|
Hold 2017-2027- The 2007 Brunello di Montalcino is gorgeous. Dark red cherries, plums, spices, leather and tobacco wrap around the palate as this dense, powerful wine starts to open up. Expressive aromatics are woven throughout, giving the 2007 a measu...

A very nice clean Malbec. Good fruit and nice finish.
|Winery:||Château Gruaud Larose|
|Region:||France » Bordeaux » Saint-Julien|
There seems to be no doubt about the quality of the 1986 Gruaud-Larose, which in 20 years should rival the extraordinary 1990, 1982, 1961, 1949, and 1928 made at this vast estate. From the first time I tasted this wine in cask, I have thought it to be ...
Nice smooth cab tried at grandparents NYE

My first Malbec. Will be trying some more. Dark fruit, real earthy, very nice balance.

Decanted for 30min. Very brownish brick color, very light body. Tobacco on the nose. Cherry and leather on the palette. Nice finish of cherry.
|Winery:||Chateau Cos d'Estournel|
|Region:||France » Bordeaux » Saint-Estèphe|
The 1985 from cask could have been a lighter version of the 1982 and 1953 vintages. Forward, with a fabulously scented bouquet of pain grille and concentrated red and black fruits (especially black cherries), it is rich, lush, long, and medium to full-...

I remember mine completely, just like it was yesterday, all except for the producer which I think was Tyrrell, but after 40+ yrs the name has faded. What remains vivid is the experience. The place was in Freemantle, just outside Perth, in 1976. Hungry for a good meal, myself and 2 friends chanced upon this spot. It was owned by a WW2 refuge... Read More

I find my 1995 Madiran a bit dry/tart for my taste and am considering blending the remaining four bottles with a Cabernet. Any objections? Suggestions? March 25, 2016 Read More
When I first became interested in wine I used to get Brunello di Montalcino and ... a minimum of 2 years in oak casks followed by a minimum of 4 months in the bottle. I tasted some super Brunello’s over my two day visit but, I asked, what happens if a fruit-starved vintage can’t handle two years in cask? The answer came back quickly, “such wine... Read More
