Dinner at Bern's. Well the bottle was a gamble. We didn't know what the vintage or the vineyard was as the label was completely gone and the mag had all kinds of dried dirt on it. We figured what the hell though, it IS a DRC. Well when the somm pulled the cork, woohoo, it was a 59. Now of course we had to figure out what 59 it was. We all came to the same conclusion. RSV, no doubt. So much spice and lush, dense fruit. This was really amazing. Truly a monumental wine that could have lived on for decades. This is what wine is all about, being able to experience something like this with great people!!!!!

(Romanee St. Vivant Marey-Monge (DRC)) with its sweet, baked fruit. The wine was a touch stewed, and Rob was a bit sad, as he felt it should have been .one of the wines of the night.. It had the game, spice, and chapitalized, silky, webbed fruit. Rudy felt it was .funky.. There were meat and leather flavors, and the wine was oaty on the palate, and Ben noted .marshmallow.. It didn.t hold it together on the palate and the nose got mustier as well. Rudy remarked how he was not a big fan of the 1959 vintage as they are .fat and low in acid., and Rob concurred that they are .dying off left and right.. I don.t think this was the best bottle of this wine, hence the question mark
