Gorgeous wine. Striking in the purity of its expression. red fruit, fine fine tannins that are well integrated, a compelling complexity of aroma and flavor. The wine is pungent and intense, and also finessed and seemingly weightless. Swoon worthy.
Borgogna: Un bracere che arde, incenso, acciuga, menta, peperoncino rosso fresco, ma anche toni dolci. Stupendo da l'idea di un negozio di spezie antico. In bocca perfetto equilibrio lungo e vibrante. ritorni di cola e sale. Buonissimissimo.
Clos de tarts and Vintage Madeira Tasting at John V.'s: Pale ruby coloring showing some age with a bit of browning. The nose has a nice funk with cherries and pwdered cherry drink mix. On the palate, it is a bit hollow and the finish is clipped. Slightly bitter as well. Meh. I have had this a few times and i don't see it getting much better. At one time, I had higher hopes for this vintage.
