Haley's "Aging Gracefully" list at Town Hall is super rad. So many awesome bottles at great prices. Forman 87 was ship shape. Black and juicy, with espresso, bitter chocolate, an black olive. Great structure, more life ahead. Great value. #aginggracefully

A really unusual and delicious wine. It had a briny quality to it. Great with oysters.

Aged nicely. Still quite contained. A soured touch of wood. Dark cherry. Leather and a graves-like austerity. Excellent without being mindblowing.

It looked young, but tasted mature. Dark fruit along with cedar and tobacco. A Bordeaux ringer - fantastic.

Loved this but maybe I'm the only one. Mint and eucalyptus notes. A bit brash but not as tannic as the 89 Bdx we had.
