Wednesday, July 17, 2013 - RJ’s wine dinner – random wines – Krug, Salon, Leroy, Truchot, Dujac, La Turque, Chave, SQN and etc. (Mon Ami Gabi - Reston, VA): This is a big scale wine. Intense jammy black fruits, crushed blackberries, cassis, licorice, bitter chocolate and earth. Excellent concentration unctuous palate, nicely integrated tannins and long finish. Enjoyable now but will improve with time. My recommendation is to decant for a couple hours minimum and serve with a dry aged extra fatty charred USDA prime ribeye.
