Drank at Home Isn't it wonderful when you open an old bottle of Burgundy and it beats all your expectations. There is nothing nicer in the wine world. This was incredible, somehow the fruit was still there although faded it had an amazing aroma of flowers in a meadow. Wonderful palate and a medium length. Now where do I find another perfectly stored bottle. hmmm
1970 DRC Horizontal...and Friends (Inovasi - Lake Bluff IL): Nose was all secondary with a slightly odd vegetal element as well. Palate didn't have much fruit either, but na interesting earthy mushroom series of flavors. That same vegetal component cam through as well on the palate, I'm wondering if its a remnant of stems that didn't work out so great in a challenging vintage.
End of the year with the "Usual Suspects" (Sips Restaurant in Southwest Harbor, ME): . FROM MAGNUM: Color: Rusted Ruby Smell: Underbrush, earth, hints of mushroom, and dried red fruits. Taste: A melange of tart red fruits, leather, dusty hints of seasoned or weathered cedar, and a linging hint of mushrooms intermixed with cranberries. Overall: Still such a pleasure to be able to taste this wine...it's been interesting to see this wine on three seperate occasions and track the changes that have occured over time. Now the tannins and acidity were more present than the previous time, with more dried fruits and a lightly austere edge to the wine...but still such a treat. We were all surprised after the wine was revealed.
