1993 Double Blind Horizontal (Chris'): Double blind. Pale ruby color. Fragrant aromas of aged red fruit and herbs. Palate shows medium body with good dose of acid that provides balance. More earth-driven flavors on the palate. Medium finish.
Double Blind 1993s From Around the World (Chez Hughes - Chicago IL): Tasted double blind in what turned out to be a flight of 1993s from around the world. Pale-medium color. Earthy aromas with mature red fruit. Moderate intensity with good mushroom flavors with good spice. Moderate length or finesse, perhaps a few years past its peak, but very clean and pleasurable tonight.
med garnet color; nose of figs, herbs, tart red cherry/pomegranate juice; first flavors follow the nose, add light spices, tart red cherry, hint of stewed strawberry ; med body, light balanced finish, complex "echo" of the first impressions; med long, crisp finish, tartness more than "weight"; very balanced wine, maybe 5 yrs beyond "fruitiness" prime but at a very good place for me
In the glass a light ruby color with the faintest of amber at the edge - The nose is very reticent and with coaxing the faintest of cranberry,spice and the telltale aroma of maturing pinot - In the mouth an acidic backbone, little fruit and a lingering stemminess that is not all that attractive - Not one of WS better efforts
Pinot Cafe: Lots of rim change--brick color; fantastic aromatics of asian spice, tar, truffles, licorice, with great high notes; 1st notes were musk and wet sock, tho, and appeared a couple times during the evening. Long finish, earthy, complex, Barbaresco-like! Amazingly good!!! W/truffles on a egg thing on a brioche. So perfect w/this. Also had succulent veal loin w/celery cream sauce, apple deep fried. Killer.
