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.

On tertiary notes; smells like a walk in the woods during fall. Not much fruit left on this bottle.

1989 Bordeaux PNV Retrospective at Larkmead. One of my favorites. Looked more youthful than many of the other wines. Dried leaves, peppermint. Leather. Full mouth. Nuanced. Not much fruit left. Classic old claret.

Not shut down but not really very expressive right now. Some graphite, purple fruit and obvious stuffing but relatively dormant and still undeniably youthful.

Another Wednesday Wine Committee for the books, this one in honor of a former WWC member, with the wines donates from his cellar by his family. A wonderful tribute. Wines tasted blind as usual.

Hello gorgeous! Hard not to call this Bordeaux from a reputable producer. I called it early ‘80s. Tart cherry, a streak of green/vegetal notes down the middle but it wasn’t detracting at all. Herbs and underripe black fruit finish. This powered through 2hours in the glass easily. Beautiful.
