Oh my ... my last again. I’m impressed by this bottle of exquisite Merlot. Drinking at its peak, in my opinion. Soft, velvet in the mouth, with a firm mid palette and a perfumed, lavender-like finish that intoxicates. Continued to improve and evolve over the evening and reminded me that you can’t rush a river...you must let nature take it’s time and then magic happens.

In Magnum. Fruit has survived but acid is gone. A bit muddy.

Well pitched wine - deft use of oak, powdery tannins and #delectable dark fruits

While not the highest scoring wine of the weekend, it was my favorite. The 99 Palmer is gorgeously textured, sexy, velvet in the mouth, nicely rounded subtle dark red cassis, mint, menthol, dry stones, dark florals, forest floor, smoke, soft leather, iodine, fresh floral bouquet, beautiful round acidity and a well balanced elegant finish. Paired nicely with our Ribeye and rack of lamb. Still needed a two hour decant. If you have the 99, I’d hold it another 10 years if you have the patience.

1961 Legend stands out in spectacular form! It might be the silkiest wine I ever had as the velvety texture opens gently into cashmere and seamless transition to rich cocao laced ganache like sentiment which was the best sludge I’ve ever tasted too! Wow...deserves the legend!
