Drank this wine from commercial cold storage. Very nice bottle, wonderfull nose, as much fruit as you would expect for the vintge and more than the last bottle. Medium body, ruby color with no bricking. There should be time left for bottles stored well.
declined since last bottle but still very nice. Good aromas but light on fruit since last time. I still have bottles in commercial cold storage will have to try one of those soon. Prob time to drink up;
Shanghainese dinner at Liu Yuan Pavilion. Deep coloured, fulled bodied wine with viscous legs. Both nose and palate became more delicious and complex as dinner progressed - good fruits, leather. Wine still had good tannins. Would have thought this was a younger wine, and maybe a French one rather than a 19 yr old Californian cab sauv. Enjoyable drink. Suspect the wine won't get too much better so I will not hold on to it.
