Part 1 of the final and main event for the Fall WNH. The most spectacular lineup of wines I’ve ever seen, and an overall wonderful ending to an amazing trip with fantastic people.

This is a monster. A battle between fruit and herbal spices. Saddle leather, dusty/earthy underripe fruit (black and red dominant) with a graphite and charcoal/smoke finish. Didn’t get any stewed/muddled fruit notes which some say is common for this vintage. Hold and enjoy in 7+yrs (and the next 20 after that!) A treat,
