I've only been gone from San Antonio for 4 months and was greeted with quite a special evening of wines. Crazy crazy night.
(in the order tasted)
Here’s the notes. Damn we drank a lot of wine! Incredible night, thanks to everyone for their very generous contributions. Notes are in the order tasted
Couple of summary points:
-I really like ’98 bdx to drink now. Good stuff all around.
-Given the price of ’00 Ducru compared to ‘09/’10, gotta load up
-I have no idea what I got so much heat from Colgin/Saxum. Clos des Papes was almost 16% alcohol and only the slightest edge of heat.
-I get the hysteria with Schrader. Good stuff.
-Spanish rioja might be my new region of interest. Great stuff there for reasonable prices. Thanks B for the initial introduction (with another NM 95+ wine for the point chasers)
-Big thanks to CC for hosting such a large group. Hope we didn’t impact your Thurs night bottom line too much. Unfortunately I think the wait staff was a little late in the game asking for samples—hopefully they’ll speak up a little sooner next time.
-You’ll notice there is less detail in the notes the farther along the evening. You know why. This night hung with me though the weekend...
