Confrérie Des Chevaliers du Tastevin Sous-Commanderie d'Albany; 20 September 2020 at New World Bistro, Albany, NY
Physically Distanced 🚧 but Socially Close 🤗 dinner, our first in +8mo. Following the reasonable NY State dining regulations, seated and masked. While a new experience, it was well worth it to see our core group again. — a month ago
Deep golden oak with slight crisp edge. Buttery soft pairs well with shellfish salt brine — a month ago
Clean, slightly peppery flavor. Still slightly more jammy than desired. Best with food. — 4 months ago
1994 Screaming Eagle. Dinner w J&L B and D&M H while staying with D&M in Santa Ynez. Opened and waited about an hour. Decanted right before serving. Tons of jammy dark fruit. Opened more in the glass. JB mentioned full palate and balance. Great finish. Preferred this to ‘91 Dominus once this opened up. — 9 months ago

Wow. Dessert wines are some of my favorites! Vineyard almost lost a sale by doing a wine tasting with this being warm...which is a mistake. Glad my wife rocks and convinced me to buy a bottle anyways. Serve super cold after 24 hours in the refrigerator. Not sweet...semi-sweet. Definitely an impressive bottle. Dark berries and dark jam scents and taste. Smooth finish and jam like. Would recommend and buy again. — 4 months ago
Give this a big sniff. Honey. The orange blossom honey straw at the farmers market. It's suggestively sweet but without the slightest bit of residual sugar. Black peppered honey, coriander, and pineapple. A light weight - I"m guessing 10.5% - 11.5% ABV. B — 25 days ago
