Brought by Doug in honor of Joe Cz. This was The Wine Enthusiast "Wine of the Year" for 2008.
All wines were acquired on release and professionally stored. Pristine bottles; fills were well into the neck. Wines were decanted off the sediment about 5 hours before the tasting; bottles were rinsed and wine poured back into the bottles.
I think there was a 1998 E+E Black Pepper Shiraz poured as well?
Served with a fruit tart.
As expected, the overall quality level was quite high.
