Vintage Porto 1991

1991. Decanted. Much better after 24 hours of air and still singing after 48 hours. I got raisins, dried cherry, a lot of orange peel, fresh herbs, some wood, a bit of cigar, but I was truly surprised by the citrus I got in each visit. Really loved this. Definitely let it air for a day at this point. — 17 days ago

Vintage Selection Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 1974

Wine dinner with big group including Butch neighbor Art, Philip and Bewan. The best one of the Krug ‘74 yet. Nose of pruny red fruits and earth carrying over to palate and long finish. Lively, intriguing notes coming in and out. Homage to old CA Cabs, drinking history indeed. — a month ago

Louis Roederer

Vintage Champagne Blend 2015

The 4th wine at the Louis Roederer dinner at the Downs Club on Friday night. A blend of 70% Pinot Noir and 30% Chardonnay. Interestingly the Pinot vineyards are south facing and the Chardonnay vineyards are north facing. The Pinot asserts itself in the aroma with red fruits with yellow fruits from the Chardonnay. The palate incorporates these aromatics and is fresh, exhibiting power and energy. A great future here and already mouthwatering. — 9 days ago

Vintage Port Blend 2016

My 4th spin with this vintage and it's holding steady, if a little more reserved than it was in youth. The 16s were super open and drinkable young but have added more of what you'd expect in it's youth, more structure, more density, just more serious. Decant if having right away. If you can plan it, splash decant briefly and rebottle it with the cork open for 24 hours. — 23 days ago

Veuve Clicquot Ponsardin

Vintage Brut Champagne Blend 2012

Another beautiful vintage from one of my favorite houses.

Medium gold with very pleasing perlage. Quite youthful with a bursting bouquet of pears, quince, and butter. A touch of apple and brioche.

Plenty of tension and drama here. Reminiscent of so many previous Veuve vintages, stately and refined. More precise and focused than in other years. Giving a definite Pinot profile with a medium body and a robust nature.

Plenty of fruit on the palate with cherries and raspberries initially. The citrus begins to creep in along with roasted nuts and toasted bread bread. Another outstanding champagne from Veuve.

Crisp and tasty, but not sure it is worth the price tag. Citrus peel and wild Italian herbs. — 9 days ago

Tignanello Toscana Super Tuscan Blend 1988

Birthday year wine for me! Might not be the best Tig vintage, but nothing to scoff at. The ‘88 is getting to be almost last prime, this time bottle showing well. Rusty red with strong aromas of cigar box, leather, and pencil shavings. Drinks slightly thin, and im not getting much fruit. Still, it’s tasty and a special vintage to me. — 2 days ago
