Very enjoyable Wednesday Wine Committee lunch today with @Weston Eidson & @Colby Siratt hosting. Same format as always...1 sparkler, 3 whites, 4 reds and 1 dessert wine all tasted blind.

Lovely aromatics here. Mix of red and black fruit. Tar, pipe tobacco, graphite and black cherry cola. This picked up steam the longer it was open. I’d hold these. I called this left bank 2012 vintage.

Coffee,toffee, berry, still young with a lot of potential, touch of licorice at finish. Beautifully integrated.

Cedar, cigar box, black currant, earth, and a floral thing lingering in the background (could it be a rose scent?) the palate is rather on the thin side, a small, pleasant matter without weight, a radiant black currant fruit all along, some joyful tannins, with a grain which gives it a nice complex mouthfeel. The finish is fruity, a bit toasty and leaves a nice aftertaste. We paired it with homemade spaghetti bolognese (I know it's a bit decadent 😏) and the pairing actually worked better than expected. This is certainly not a good vintage, thus the wine lacks a bit of horse power but it's delicate, complex and very well done. I like it very much! #sundaynighttreat(before the night actually begins 😅)

1989 vintage. Pushing past maturity but still pleasant with rich notes of licorice and oak. 12.5% ABV. From the FIL’s collection.
