Grange Bin 95 Shiraz 2004

Nice balance and grip. It seemed a bit more muted but had undeniable weight and substance. Excellent pairing with pepper crusted filet mignon. Cork completely fell apart on me but the wine survived! — 9 days ago

Grange Hermitage Bin 95 Shiraz Cabernet Sauvignon 1982

Absolutely stunning. Consumed on the eve of my 39th birthday. (I am an 82 and my birth year wines are becoming increasing hard to find. This one was purchased as a complete OWC from a private cellar and perfectly stored.)

This bottle was so fresh and immaculately stored. The cork came out beautifully. Dark dark color still. Right off the bat the nose screams PENFOLDS GRANGE with eucalyptus, tar, smoked meats and abundant DARK fruit. A gorgeous wine with years and years left ahead of it.

Tasted alongside 1982 Chateau Margaux from the cellar and we all found the 1982 Grange to be the superior wine. It left my mouth watering. Absolutely beautiful and one of the top two or three wines I’ve ever tasted of not the best

@David T hahah that $69 price tag was on the bottle when it was released in 1984/1985 making it about $19 more than the margaux at that time. I purchased a private cellar and these bottles hadn’t moved since they were purchased on release. Special stuff

Vin de Pays de l'Hérault White Rhone Blend 2013

What a sad sad news. Yesterday Laurent Vaillé of Grange des Pères died at the age of 57. A big loss. Today, this briljant 2013 White deserves the perfect score. RIP Laurent. Thank you for all the beautiful moments thanks to your wines. — a month ago

Deep golden color and notes of oxidation on an otherwise complex ripened fruits and earth profile carrying through to surprisingly balanced but still acidic palate. Great with Leila’s garlic paprika buttery lemony shrimp. On the downslope from past glory drank perhaps decade ago. Last of two GL20. — 24 days ago

Grande Réserve Pères Trappistes Belgian Ale 2019

Big head... smells of Molasses and chocolate cake. A classic Trappist. Dark. Thick. A slow sipper. Tried to match with Indian food... I’d say it worked-ish. (the vintage is on the cork). — 9 days ago

@Josh Morgenthau if you haven’t had the VEP—prepare to have your mind blown. Whole different level from the regular green. Had the yellow VEP years ago as well—buy on sight!

Omg. The regular green already blows my mind every time I have it. I’m mustering all the strength I have not to stop work early to go out searching for the VEP right now.
