  • 2001 Tenuta dell'Ornellaia Masseto Toscana IGT

    Black color. Completely opaque at the core. Strong scents of blueberry, bramble berry and coffee. Incredibly dense and thick in texture with the most delightful flow across the palate in a smooth and sensuous motion. Excellent structure and definition, and most importantly of all - balance. Packing an impressive 15% vol. this wine is a monster, and I could feel the effect after a mere two gulps. However, the alcohol is wrapped in a soft glove of velvety fruit, layers of complexity and a wonderful interpretation - and sense of - style. With a 45 second aftertaste (without hotness) this wine is brilliant. Seriously brilliant.

  • 1999 Château d'Yquem

    1999 Yquem, Sauternes/Barsac, Bordeaux, France
    Light yellow color. Closed on the nose with subtle hints of orange peel and honey. Medium body with good fatness and classy botrytis. Fresh and ripe with a nice aftertaste on notes of brown sugar.

  • 1975 Château Mouton Rothschild

    1975 Mouton Rothschild, Pauillac, Bordeaux, France
    Light red color with clear browning at core and rim. Wonderfully vivacious and sweet on the nose with great scents of cassis and black berry. Medium bodied in the mouth with deliciously sweet and round fruit flavors, good definition and textbook elegance. No hardness, astringency or other such characteristics that might be expected from a 1975 left banker. Balanced and round, sweet and long aftertaste. Veeeery nice.
