  • 1998 Mount Mary Quintet

    Australia, Victoria, Port Phillip, Yarra Valley

    Med(+) body, medium tannin, fresh red fruit and green pepper. Really, really nice clarity to the palate. Not unlike a candle in the window. Great experience.

  • 1996 Gundlach Bundschu Vintage Reserve

    USA, California, Sonoma County, Sonoma Valley

    Fine tugging tannin, medium(+) body, medium tannin, and again a green aspect, but not the balance of the Mount Mary 1998 or the girth of the 02 Pichon Baron.

  • 2002 Château Pichon-Longueville Baron

    France, Bordeaux, Médoc, Pauillac

    Big dark red fruit, almost into raspberry. Espresso, med(+) tannin, med acid and full body. A full tilt style and top of this 3 set.

  • 2004 Domaine Leroy Gevrey-Chambertin

    France, Burgundy, Côte de Nuits, Gevrey-Chambertin

    Wild red fruit palate. The 'wild' feels like some resolving stem. Insanely juicy red fruit palate. Rhubarb. Was this the wine that went toe-to-toe with 07 Folk Machine Factories and Smoke Pinot Noir?

  • 1990 Maison Leroy Maranges

    France, Burgundy, Côte de Beaune, Maranges

    This has been open for more than just a couple hours at this point. Palate is drying out a touch, but smoke and forest floor. Past it's best, i'm sure, but still holding on with med(-) tannin. Super fine and iodine. Quite a treat.

  • 2007 Folk Machine Pinot Noir Factories & Smoke

    USA, California, Central Coast, Monterey County

    Uber-soft palate and still showing a touch of oak. Sweet fruit, but with med(-) tannin. Dark earth aspect and great with Lapierre Morgon Red Velvet Cake.
