July 4th Friday was a total blowout! Killer bottles one after another. Here are just a few of the bottles we all enjoyed!

En mag and insanely youthful. This was pop and poured and it could have been decanted half of the day. Enjoyed trying a glass of this shortly after it was opened to see how it was right out of the gate...currant, underripe black fruit, vanilla pipe tobacco, and leather. Powerfully tannic. Bay leaf and ripe black cherries with a dense profile.

Nice effort from a great vintage. Ready to drink with lots of life left

Singular perfection. Hits straight to the brain stem.

Big and rich and so primary tasted blind you would think maybe 10 years old. A serious bottle but the only complaint a little hot on the finish and one dimensional .

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.

Painfully young. Underripe raspberries, black cherries, charcoal, black tea on the nose. Graphite, blackberries, and underbrush on the palate with a monster tannic finish. Needs so much time. I called this ‘12 Left Bank.

Never quite hit the heights we were expecting. Graphite pencil and big tannin that never really left were the dominant flavours over 3 days.

Cigar, leather, dust, sweet dark fruits. High acidity and resolved tannins. This was best after 30-45 minutes and started to fall apart after 2.5 hours.

Good looking bottle and fill. Reddish tawny, brighter and younger looking than the 94 Dominus mag next to it. Fruit forward nose. Notes of red currant fruit, plums, gravel stone, some cassis and a little cigar box. Pleasant in the mouth. Still has some structure to go with the fruit. Shorter than desired finish. Most liked this over the Dominus.
