An eclectic group of wines with friends (Walden): This bottle had been open for a week. Really love this stuff. Dry. The nose shows some tea, maple, slight orange, slight chocolate. On the palate, deep and complex. Very smooth. Savory not sweet. A little goes a long way.
Dinner with Friends (3x82 BDX, and lot of other stuff) (The Trout Club): This was pop and pour and consumed outside with cigars. I think it needed more air as the last sip seemed to be picking up. The nose has oranges, slight honey and a bit of green tobacco. On the palate, this is mostly dry. Nice orange zest with a bit of tea and honey. Good mouth feel. Worked well with the cigars.
