Parallel Forty Four

La Rioja Alta

Centenario Rioja Tempranillo 1973

Highlight wine at Old Rioja Wine Dinner. Little history on the bottle: it's part of a special lot that was to be released on the 100th anniversary of La Rioja Alta and a blend of 85% Tempranillo with some Mazuelo, Graciano and Viura. It was aged for twenty four months in large oak vats, then for ten years in 18-20 year old barriques and finally bottled in 1986 to be released in 1990 in commemoration of the Wineries Centenary Anniversary… Forty eight years after harvest the wine is pure pleasure. Beautiful brownish/reddish color with scents of rose petals, boysenberry, musk, forest floor, mushroom and old leather on the nose. On the pallet, the oak, tannings and fruit are completely integrated; very docile yet seductive. A true gem and one of the most interesting wines I've ever tasted. — 8 months ago

Frozen Tundra Frontenac

Fruity almost like a pink moscato. Definitely a dessert wine or while watching the game! Go pack go! — 8 years ago

Domaine Georges Roumier

Bonnes-Mares Grand Cru Pinot Noir 2002

Four hours and forty five minutes of air using Audoze method followed by 45 minutes in the decanter. Likely overkill perhaps an hour less on Audoze method. Beautifully balanced. — 5 years ago

If you're looking for a good desert wine, this is the best I've found! — 6 years ago

Jean Edwards Cellars

Seventy Four - Forty One Cabernet Sauvignon 2008

First time trying this and now wishing I remember where I got it from! Absolutely stunning Cali Cabernet - menthol and tobacco dominate this wine with firm but integrated tannins. — 6 years ago
