Wine Dinner to Start the School Year - 90 Dom, 87 DRC, 78 Margaux, 04 Kapscandy ...: Close to a perfect glass of pinot noir in my mind. Definitely was a hair better than the DRC 87 G.E. that we had right before it. If the first was a fly weight boxer, this was a prima ballerina. An elixir of raspberry, some plum, truffles, loam and an exquisite minerality formed a slow moving experience that I wished had lasted the whole night, I had to restrain each sip because I ddn't want it to end. ONce again, the generosity of a friend made this once again an aha moment to always be remembered. Not surprising, the wine of the night.
So fragrant so floral. Raspberries sharp and incredible amounts of fruits. Lovely acids and tannins which are very nicely integrated. With bits of tobacco and fruits. It's singing at this point in time.
This is absolutely the best wine of the night. Truly a Lin experience rather than a wine. The nose was extraordinary and floral. You could smell it from the edge of the table. The taste is bang on in terms of the mix of acids and tannins. This comes with cherries licorice and a bit of tobacco and tea leaves. So so beautiful. Amazing.
