Still a bit of life. Crazy old bottle with about 10% gone due to ullage. Even a touch of fruit remaining, but mostly oxidized and reasonably pleasant. A real treat once the cork was finally full removed.

This wine is huge favorite among wine drinkers of all types, both novice (never tried chenin blanc) and those with sophisticated palates. Sweetness with acidity and long finish, wow! Need to get more of this year, if possible

2006 Pax Syrah Griffin's Lair

Sonoma Coast more

10/18/2014 - kennyg Likes this wine: 94 points

Brought this to a Nuevo Mexicano restaurante and wow, great pairings. Went well with spicy beef dishes. Nicely integrated tannins with well preserved fruit. A little heat, but not offensive. Sl overpaid at San Diego wine bank but Pax is now a real collector's item and this bottle proves why. Crazy good.

1990 Caymus Cabernet Sauvignon

Napa Valley more

7/13/2014 - kennyg wrote: 88 points

Color shows age. Nose slightly maderized. Open up a bit over an hour in glasses. Fruit is gone and slight astringency remains. After overnight under vacuum pump, not bad next morning; tastes more sangiovese than cab at this point. Past prime but not flawed. Drinkers who like much older domestic cabs may still find pleasure in this bottle.

5/24/2014 - kennyg wrote: 91 points

Cassis and eucalyptus, well integrated tannins. Hot on opening but somewhat high alcohol blew off over an hour in the glasses at restaurant. This is very nice and given the slightly muted fruit, don't see it improving all that much. Would drink now with decant for alcohol. Nice new world Bordeaux blend

Sl peppery nose. Mature Grenache with earthy undertones. Drinking quite well at this time. WS missed the mark based on short term aging potential of this now very well balanced and highly enjoyable wine. Stood up nicely next to a well know Barolo and will complement a hearty meal as well. I will try to find more and drink soon!
