Weekly Wednesday Wine Committee lunch...always such a treat to attend. This week, Dan hosted. 1 sparkler, 3 whites, 4 reds and 1 dessert wine. All blind as usual.
I guessed late 80s/early 90s port. A bit surprised this was an ‘85...so incredibly young. Color was still quite dark. Nose and palate were heavy on cinnamon-sugar cashew notes, cocoa and nutmeg. — 3 days ago
Nectar of the gods. Hazelnut, chewy with honey meets orange zest. Just beautiful intersection of robust flavors and golden color tones. — 14 days ago
1966 vintage. Great length and complexity. Candied orange peel, burnt coffee, toffee, almonds, dried fig, dried apricot, cocoa butter, bitter white flowers. Shares characteristics of tawny and white Port. Quite an experience and am awesome cheese wine. Received as Christmas gift and finally enjoying for birthday weekend! — 13 days ago

Nice sweetness, huge flower in the nose. Some slight bitterness at the end — a day ago
More tension on the palate, controlled power. Subtle and refined. Nice. — 11 days ago
