    (DRC La Tache) More red wine? How about a magnum of 1949 DRC La Tache? Very LT and very ’49, this was about as rich as 1949 can be. It had the oil, the rose, the leather, the meat, the menthol. As Crane noted, it had ‘a feminine style but still manly.’ Everyone noted its greatness, with lots of oohs and aahs coming from the crowd. It was definitely wine of the night so far, and even had Robert asking for seconds.

    (DRC La Tache) more than made up for the disappointing palate of the Lambrays with a stunning arsenal of aromas and flavors. ‘Wow,’ began my notes, ‘a great La Tache.’ Bob noted ‘brown sugar;’ Rudy its ‘fat and liqueur.’ It had this meaty, pungent, intense edge and was full of game, iron, plum, prune and animal. Rich, long and elegant, it still had excellent definition on its finish, and great game and soy flavors, along with a touch of brandy and ‘licorice.’ It was pure and a classic
