(DRC La Tache) The official first flight began with a forward and volatile wine. Aromas of hot tobacco, pungent rose and squashed tomato were joined by ‘balsamic’ and ‘dill’ from the crowd. The palate was lush and round with ripe, red, tangy flavors. Tomato and Worcestershire were present in this gamy, wild and exciting wine. It got a little orangey with some apricot jam, but it could do whatever it wanted as it was a 1960 DRC La Tache. This was impressive for a theoretically shit vintage; I don’t think I have ever even had a wine from 1960. Bucket list now shorter (93).
