Brought to a friend's suckling pig roast as a throw in as my primary bottle was an 02 Alion. Host laughingly refers to older wines from my cellar that I never got around to drinking as "graveyard wines". Expected very little. Popped, decanted and poured. Fair amount of sediment. Shockingly good. Light ruby with no browning. Beautiful cherry nose. Refined soft blended palate of earth, cedar, coffee, tobacco and cherry. Just beautiful and puts a fair number of 82 Bordeaux that I have tried to shame.
Tasted five Tinto Pesquera this evening, a special thanks to Joe Fitzpatrick for sharing. Very nice old smokey coffee and tobacco flavors on the nose, more of the same on the palate, long finish, clearly the winner tonight.
