Excellent with prime rib. — 11 days ago
Just concluded the annual Fall seclusion at our cabin in the Rangeley lakes region of Maine, mobile service up there is mostly non-existent, after several days I am posting again. Notes are somewhat brief, as my focus is relaxing and watching the Common Loons swimming and diving in the cove in front of our camp.
Decanted 6+ hours, no new notes; a fantastic St. Emillion! Paired to Allen Bros. USDA Prime Filets, melt in your mouth good at 130°F.
Nose has black cherry, ripe red cherry, dark cocoa powder, light barrel toast, plum skin, washed blackberry and crushed blueberry.
Palate has ripe black/red cherry, wet leather, high cacao content chocolate, under-ripe plum, wet clay and trailing hints of dehydrated mint.
Awesome pairing to Allen Bros. USDA Prime beef fillets, three day salt rest and Hickory smoked on the grill to ~130° = Heaven, should you believe in such post-life retirements. — 5 hours ago
