Château d'Agassac

Haut-Médoc Red Bordeaux Blend 2007

Update / Edit : 2 hrs later. This just needed time to open up, and is now actually pretty amazing. Lots of balance, dark fruits and time.

Original: 2007 Bordeaux drinking now in late 2020. 13 years hidden in the cellar was probably a bit too much aging. It's past prime, and tough to tell what it started with. All that's left is a bit of oak cherry and leather

Vigneto Saetti

Rosso Viola Lambrusco 2019

Interesting and funky natural wine adorned with the coolest label (stitched fabric) I have seen/touched. The attention to detail carries through from the winemaking process to packaging (quite literally—as a small paper note, describing the process, was hidden under the foil). — 15 days ago

Hidden Horse No. 17 Red Blend

Blown away by how great this blend was! Mostly Cabernet Sauvignon w/ Merlot + Cabernet Franc & Malbec. Beautiful dark color, complex fruit flavor; black raspberry/cherry with nice acidity. 🎇🎇🎇 — a month ago

James Halliday

Hunter River Traminer Riesling 1979

Actually a cleanskin of the Lindemans bin 5687 Traminer Riesling and I am not sure if the Riesling was instead a semillon at that stage.
The wine was absolutely past its peak, but had some freshness and a long after taste.
Bought on auction from James Halliday' cellar collection.
1979 was a great vintage in Hunter Valley
Surely happy I tried, but not the greatest.

After 4 hrs I go back on the remaining half btl of the wine which was left unattended on the kitchen bench with a random cork inserted since its own obviously crumbed at the opening.
Well, don't ask me, but the wine has opened up aromas earlier hidden of white chocolate, macadamia, hay, ginger, apricot jam, a bountiful of flowers, lemon grass, English breakfast tea and so much more. Not so sweet at all and very enjoyable now. Definitely something I might not be able to experience again perhaps.

@Ceccherini Cristiano Great experimentation Cec. There would be some hidden gems in Halliday’s huge cellar.

@Bob McDonald I feel like I will pour some in the sink😄😄, but the good ones are going to be unforgettable. I did get some old whites from the Hunter that might be fireworks...or not😅

From one of the great M-S-R estates, this 2014 was tight in its first several years. It’s really opened up now. Elegant, expressive, and sweetness hidden. Has a good 15 or more years of potential development. — 21 hours ago

Domaine Anne Gros

Richebourg Grand Cru Pinot Noir 1996

Tasted blind. Dark purple with tawny rims. Powerful sharp nose. Notes of black fruit, pepper, rhubarb, dark spice and dark earth. Has that tinny mouth feel that I’ve associated with 96s before. I find this young and harsh, with a massive core of fruit hidden underneath. The profile implies to me it’s Vogue and I throw out a 99 Musigny guess. Others liked this wine more than me. I question if the fruit can ever balance with the in-your-face acidity and structure. Some 96s have stated to soften and move into a drinking window. For me, not this one yet. — 12 days ago

limited experience w her wines but not a big fan. Wasn’t too oaky?

There was definitely some oak there... it’s the shrill acidity that dominated the experience tho. Maybe with a lot of air it might have resolved and softened up a bit
