Wino Guys Weekend (WGW) #2; 11/7/2008-11/8/2008: Definitely an experience and a privilege to taste a wine that is 111 years old. Ruddy orange/amber in colour, with plenty of tea and orange oil from the nose through to the finish. Short finish. NR.
Wine Guy Weekend Chez Doktas Take 2; 11/7/2008-11/8/2008 (Collingwood, Ontario): Light orange/pale ruby-brick colour. A nose of sulphur. hibiscus, and iced tea with hints of tar. More lemony iced tea taste on the palate and strikingly similar in taste profile to the 1934 Margaux I had only earlier this year but the later was slightly more dense. Maybe a 5-10 second finish and despite the bottle's age, it had a decent amount of acidity and a light but present nose. 111 year old bottle. Wow factor, 95 points, overall 87-88 points. Thanks to the generous DoktaP for blessing us with this sample of tasting through history. Incredible.
