A few fun bottles from last Friday.

This falls in to the “good” category for me. Doesn’t stand out in a good or bad way. Down the line and easy to enjoy. The profile here was definitely lighter than expected, which was semi refreshing. At its age and with its profile, it seemed like a bridge to Bordeaux...not jammy or hot, shower some herbs, currant, dusty cedar, dried black cherries and only a kiss of oak.

Dill and Coconut. This is a wine that should have been drunk a few years ago when the fruit could have supported the American oak

I still can’t believe this wine after 23 years, dark black cherry color, needs 1-2 hours of air. Wish I didn’t sell a bottle to a buddy. Only 1 left now.
$250.00 on release or find these old masterpieces at $75.00
Parker 89 on release🤷🏼‍♂️ 20 plus years makes a huge difference.
