9.1

So, the owner of K&L Wine Merchants - Clyde Beffa has made a living finding good 1997 Bordeaux’s after the fact in a difficult vintage. It is these kinds of buys ($17.99) that have keep me from opening other more prestigious wines too early in my early years of collecting. He still bats 1000.

If you always open your wines too early, let this be an opportunity to try wines on their longer evolution. You won’t be sorry.

Snap peas & zucchini from the garden this week.

Excellent with the rib covers steak.

You simply cannot equate a 9.1 24 years old Bordeaux to a 9.1 Bordeaux to a young one. The complexity, integration & nuances take precedent. Not a fair race.
