Consistent with notes from 20mo. prior, still delicious... Apricot++ tonight! So wonderful. Paired to a great NY cheddar, Adam's Reserve Extra Sharp, perfecto! 👍👍
Nose has over-ripe apricot, almond oil, marzipan, meringue cookie and cold butter.
Palate has warmed apricot pie with extra flakey, buttery crust, sweet sand, white flower honey and mango. — 2 months ago
Maal Bestial Malbec 2016: Full-bodied. Medium tannins. Big & bold fruit flavors. Plum, blackberry, black cherry, tobacco & spice, ending with a long smooth finish. A tremendous “beast” of a Malbec and the perfect pairing with Perry’s Famous Pork Chop dish! Cheers🍷 — 2 months ago
Part 3 of Columbia County weekend: the last leg of a great dinner, w ginger ice cream. At 7.5% abv it’s remarkable the archeological dig of flavors— from candied yam to gummy bears. The texture stands out-so caressing, friendly even, like a golden lab. I don’t drink enough Auslese, & at 20$, it’s even possible — 2 months ago
1.5 hour decant (decent chunky/fine/cloudy sediment). An amazing dark purplish ruby red color...still looks young. On the nose: Nice big beautiful aromatics of graphite, currants, forest floor, sweet tobacco, creme brulee, and a little green veggie/barn yard funk. Taste: NICE! A smooth, soft, elegant, vibrant medium plus body wine with cedar, leather, blueberry, earth, smoke, and a crushed gravel-pencil lead_medium plus finish. Could drink this all night, but will probably be gone in the next hour. — 2 months ago
