Pacquiao vs. Mayweather Blind Tasting $60+ (Roswell, GA): Same note as the one on January 16th without the sulfur. The oak is prominent, but so is the white rock. This is very good oak that needs to integrate but there is an undeniable luxurious hedonistic quality to it; had to recuse after seeing the cork...would have nailed it anyway.
The Underground Blind Tasting Group: "Clos" (Houston): Violets and red fruits on the nose with a good slap of smokiness from the oak and even a bit of what I called dill, but it could have been a minty-ness as well. Fuller bodied and plump on the palate from the minute it hit the glass. This had a seductive fruit and tannin structure that filled the mouth, but still managed to stay very light on it's feet, although the oak influence was a little noticeable. The tannins were present but buried under the fruit, most of which was of the purple variety. This will obviously age and integrate the oak, but it sure was delicious tonight.
Friday Night Double Blind Tasting $40+ (Bin 75): See through dull rose; sexy, young, some sulfur, strawberry, sexy new French oak, sweet fruit, noble, WOTN just from the nose; tart sour fruit on palate, focused, sweet and delicious red fruit, precise; delicious, 93+.
