I am about post a few wines from yesterday and the day was more than memorable- first off it is my 30th anniversary and spent it with a great friend of mi e @David L at Berns in Tampa - what an amazing wine

The structure of this wine is crazy off the hook great - ant any other or every night this would be WOTN but…. What for it and look what we post next and next and next

Balance is beautiful- nose was mind blowing -complexities galore - drink the 14 and wait 2 to 5 years plus to drink the 13
