|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-...

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 ...
|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...

Decanted for 30min. Very brownish brick color, very light body. Tobacco on the nose. Cherry and leather on the palette. Nice finish of cherry.
|Region:||Argentina » Mendoza|
My first Malbec. Will be trying some more. Dark fruit, real earthy, very nice balance.
Cassis and blackberry up front that lead to a palate of toasted oak, caramel and even a little creme brulee.
|Region:||France » Bordeaux » Saint-Julien|
It's my gut feeling that the 1986 is, along with the 1982, the finest Talbot made at this estate since the legendary 1945. The fact that there are 40,000 cases of this wine is good news for the consumer, as there will be plenty to go around. The wine, ...

This is smooth as greased glass. Single malt excellence with bourbon cask and ruby port cask flavor. Extremely satisfying and mellow lasting exit.

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
