I would rather have a free bottle in front of me than a pre-frontal lobotomy.
As you would expect from Manfred. After a while you just run out of superlatives and just sit there with a Syrah stained smile on your face. Rich dark fruit with beef blood smell (that term doesn’t do justice to how interesting and delicious the combination really is). Tremendous finish, dark color to the edge. Just a great wine experience. My only bottle. I have no clue how long this wine could go before peaking. — 7 days ago
About as good as Chardonnay gets. A little too icy and crowded to ski, so we found other pursuits. As with all California Chardonnay, I drink them young, but if you are a gambler, I suspect this could go several more years, although I doubt it would improve tremendously. Happy 1st weekend of 2018 everyone. — a month ago
Fabulous older California Chardonnay. Not much acid left (it had all precipitated out), but still rich and very enjoyable. undoubtedly a but past prime for my palate. I tend to prefer to err on the side of drinking California Chardonnay too young rather than chance them being too old, so I wouldn’t hold it any longer if I had it. On the other hand, I certainly wouldn’t pass up a glass if you are offered this. Not sure how anyone could rate this a lot lower unless they had a flawed bottle, but everyone is entitled to their opinion. Thanks Dan. — 7 days ago
Better with a decant and a served little on the warm side. Suffers a bit on comparison to NV Krug Grande Cuvée, but a good value and perfectly acceptable. — 9 days ago
163rd out of 375. A standard for good reason. — 9 days ago
My last bottle of 1995 Seavey. Certainly beginning to fade, but enjoyable nonetheless. — 17 days ago
