Mr. K The Noble Man Alban Vineyard Chardonnay 2002

2002. Wow. Beautiful and elegant. Only 10% abv according to the label but I’d guess higher. Petrol, honey, Corn Pops cereal, dill, mandarin oranges, golden raisin. This is amazing. — 20 days ago

Pandora Edna Valley Grenache Syrah 2018

Warehouse wine,
Bought to stay on the allocation list, definitely opened early but I needed to compare to older vintages I’ve had. There’s a reason these last 20 years. 2002 are drinking great. 4th day on this one.
Enjoy in 2038

Alban is name of first child. what a nose, gamey, stoney, granite, loess, amazing nose. so so sick. red fruits. raspberry coulis. olives, leather, some funk, some barnyard, some horse. wow this nose. wow, so silky, so elegant, big and refined, but juicy and so so elegant. Amazing purity. So open and wide. Coulis. red fruit, so fine, so much velvety tannins, sleek and refined. polished classicism. precise dense deep and lots of material. Drinking so well now. — 5 months ago

Catching up on some wines. Enjoyed this with my friend @Shay A in FW last month at the 4th Friday event. I did not know what I had here. Really enjoyed this… — a month ago

Phenomenal bottle from @Bryan Kesting and only the second Forsythe I’ve had. Totally Mourvèdre to the core. Sports that deep and savory meatiness to the core wrapped in baked dark fruits. Large scaled without being too big. With time in the decanter, this continued to evolve and show layers. Delicious! Thanks Bryan!
