Changed the date from the actual of 4/24 to 5/1 for ease of updating notes.

Great night with four wines standing out. Chateau Palmer's 2001 was the WOTN, edging out the 1999 La Mission Haut Brion, followed by a tight race between the 2007 Almaviva and a strong showing on a QPR basis from the 06 Cinq Cepages.

Flight 1 - Bordeaux (10 Notes)

Chateaus Palmer was unbelievable, as was LMHB. Great wines. I would have enjoyed either some better vintages from the bigger names, or stuff with more age on it. Still, a great event.

Flight 2 - Other (12 Notes)

Several standouts. Gemstone, Almaviva and Cinq Cepages were the best of this group.
