Very enjoyable Wednesday Wine Committee lunch today with @Weston Eidson & @Colby Siratt hosting. Same format as always...1 sparkler, 3 whites, 4 reds and 1 dessert wine all tasted blind.

Lovely aromatics here. Mix of red and black fruit. Tar, pipe tobacco, graphite and black cherry cola. This picked up steam the longer it was open. I’d hold these. I called this left bank 2012 vintage.

Monthly WTF guys blind tasting group. This month was our annual, and famed, Left Bank vs Right Bank theme. All wines served blind as usual. Started off with a Rosé and a champagne. Great night.

I think this was my WOTN. It was ripe, showing smoked meat, roasted plum and baked blackberry pie aromatics. Full bodied, smooth, balanced between fruit and savory notes. Seems to be open for business now. I called this ‘08 Left Bank.

This is in a good spot now, but will benefit from another 3-5years. A little modern in style as it seems Napa cab-esque...baked fruit spectrum (red, blue and black), graphite, and baking spices on the nose with herbal notes and bay leaf on the palate. I called this ‘12 Left Bank. Thanks

Château Kirwan

Margaux Red Bordeaux Blend 2000

This 19 year old Margaux features dusty forest floor, earthy aroma - still fresh acidity taste and nicely blended tannins, still can lay down longer but solid Bordeaux. — 13 hours ago

Another very good wine. Super soft. Tastes more modern in style. Ripe. Mixed berry pie, chocolate covered cherry cordials and pipe tobacco notes. Balances fruit and savory notes. With an extended decant, this is very enjoyable now, but will get better. I called this ‘14 Left Bank. Thanks

I’ve been fortunate to have the legendary ‘82 a few times but never the ‘83. Nice.
