KBS Flavored Stout Maple Mackinac Fudge 2020

Thanksgiving Dessert!

“Michigan didn't invent old-fashioned fudge, but it was perfected here. We pay tribute to this time-honored tradition with KBS Maple Mackinac Fudge. By amplifying the rich chocolate notes of KBS using Mackinac Fudge coffee, then adding maple syrup and aging it in oak bourbon barrels, we've created a bold new take on our barrel-aged classic”

Eichberg Grand Cru Riesling 1997

At 23 years of age, this wine sings with a voice of tropical notes, yet never strays too far into the realm of cloyingly annoying thanks to high notes of tongue lashing acidity. Absolutely gorgeous. Lengthier than the administration of tRump and finishing with so much more grace. — 17 days ago

Valmur Chablis Grand Cru Chardonnay 2016

Ron R
9.4

Decided to take our tasting to the next logical level.
Textbook expression of Chablis. Tense, pristine and precise. Perfect weight, combines with bright acidity. Impeccable.

Corton-Charlemagne Grand Cru Chardonnay 2015

HAPPY Thanksgiving! A Burgundy Thanksgiving part 1. Oysters overnight from Hog Island Oysters!

Double decant and pour. A irresistible pale straw color. On the nose: lemon, floral, toasted almonds, pear, vanilla. Taste: A rich, creamy, big wine with citrus, minerals, spicy oak, crushed stone, and a long honey peach dry finish. Great start. Cheers!

Camus Pere & Fils

Mazy-Chambertin Grand Cru Pinot Noir 2005

Thanksgiving 2020; a quiet day with just my wife and the kitties, hopefully 2021 brings family and dear friends back for group enjoyment of this Holiday.

Nose has mashed cherries, moist garden soil, red raspberry smeared on old leather, blackcurrant, currant leaves, ripe plum and old tobacco.

Palate has black cherry, plum, cedar box, under-ripe blackberry, under-ripe blackcurrant, dry soil with iron, dried cherry but still with solid tannins. Medium acidity with a long finish.

Likely the best bottle of Domaine Camus Père & Fils we've had, in stellar shape with at least a solid decade in front of it, wow!

Thanks @Mario Vaillancourt we're purposely quiet this year; my work schedule still has me traveling quite a bit, so best to be cautious with the extended family. At least there's a good cellar here to keep us hydrated.

Our cats were hoping for 🦃, it was eyed intently prior to an excursion into the oven, then it was all paws on table after cook/rest 3.5h later. Turkey was enjoyed by all of us.

Bonneau du Martray

Corton-Charlemagne Grand Cru Chardonnay 1994

Medium gold. Oxidative nose. Notes of caramel apple, toffee, some lemon and some white stone. Lots of fruit in the mouth, but no backbone and lacking in acidity. I wouldn’t call this premox; the wine just comes off as being old and likely is reflective of the vintage. — 4 days ago

Château Rauzan-Ségla

Margaux Grand Cru Classé Red Bordeaux Blend 2016

Tonight I have opened the 2016 Château Rauzan-Ségla. A beautiful left bank Bordeaux from Margaux made up of a blend of 68% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Merlot and 2% Petit Verdot.

On the nose there is black cherry, raspberry, plum, black currant, chocolate, herbs, violets, graphite and wet rich earth.

On the palate I am getting cherry, raspberry, red plum, green bell pepper, cassis, herbs, graphite and earth.

This beautifully complex full bodied wine has a smooth satin mouthfeel with medium + acidity and medium + fine grained tannins that seamlessly moves to a long good fruit/graphite finish. This is one wine you can get very excited about and enjoy having on any occasion and for many years to come. Have a great rest of your weekend and be safe and healthy. Nostrovia! 🍷🍷🍷🍷🍷

@Larry Ito you will be good at 8-10 yrs. I don't believe it will shut down and will carry well for years to come. A beautiful wine.
