  • 2001 Feudi di San Gregorio Irpinia Serpico

    Still drinking very well. I'm sure most of you remember Parker's off the chart score and no one else liked it. We did wait 10 years per his review, and to our surprise, it has been drinking really well at 15 years of age.
    On the nose, we got shoe polish and soy sauce, not so much fruit. In the mouth at first, a little funky, but after about an hour, it was soft, rich, dense...just a wonderful wine. Very different flavor profile from most of our wines. We kept coming back to dot sauce, aromatics...soft but not the usual berry profile. Really enjoyed. Parker wins, for us, a rare one.

  • 1990 Château La Tour Haut-Brion

    A classic aged Bordeaux. I am consistently surprised at how even middle of the road Bordeaux, especially prior to the more inform and heavy Parker style, age so well. Other wines at similar price points ($23 at purchase!) may have been good, but very few are terrific 25 years later. My notes similar to others: tobacco, leather, graphite both in the nose and mouth. While certainly not improving with further age, still drinking really well. Love old Bordeaux!

  • 2001 Château de Beaucastel Châteauneuf-du-Pape

    Has aged so gracefully and drinking perfectly right now. Wonderful and classic nose--garrigue, game, but with fruit still evident. Smooth as silk with leather, garrigue, a bit of tar for us and soft, sweet fruit in the mouth. Simply a classic aged ChdP. Still a few more!
