Wanted to raise a glass to Kobe. 1978 was his birth year and the final year that had all the premier fruit! The following year all that amazing juice went to the first bottling of Opus One. This was very emotionally impactful for us. Amazing wine!

A few wines from last week’s 4th Friday event!

At 9/10yrs, this is starting to fire on all cylinders. Very dusty on the nose. Rich black cherries, clove, cardamom, and some leather too. It sports a soft yet powerful profile of fig, potpourri, graham cracker, dark cocoa and an integrated finish. Balanced at the moment, and may even improve over the next 2-3yrs. Thanks

Drinking really well. Another 5 years would be easy for this juice. One hour decant.

A huge nose of roasted meats, tobacco, ripened dark fruit and saddle leather.... the finish is smooth and balanced! Yep still full bodied and structured for it’s age.
