Sunday, April 15, 2012 - Enjoyed many really nice vinos celebrating HS's 50th and RS's 60th w/wives and D&B R. Dinner at SD26 in NYC. Extremely reasonable corkage fee and good menu, too. Lineup was:
2007 Williams Selyem Flax
1992 Dalla Valle
1998 Chris Ringland Shiraz Dry Grown
1982 Lynch Bages
1999 Salicutti Brunello
2009 Outpost True
The Ringland Shiraz was a smooth, concentrated drink, not as flamboyant as Grange. Tannins shed, can't see any point in waiting much longer to consume. Salicutti still has long life ahead, and Outpost is a tasty youngster.
