  • When choosing the order for tasting, this wine appeared to be the most backward of the group, according to the views of the published critics. In fact, I didn’t find it that way – seemed much more forward, although the wine still needs some considerable time to evolve.

    Dark purple/ruby with a thin pink rim; floral aromas that also feature red berry fruits and kitchen spices – quite fresh and fruity; entry seemed very smooth; good texture; round ripe berry fruit on the nose – just an edge of spices and floral notes; harmonious – liked the acidity – tannins still showing a rough edge; nothing in that rough edge to be concerned about; opened up more fully in the glass with another half hour; attractive finish – excellent length – sporting cherry and raspberry fruit that carries on and features a sweet edge to this fruit. This should mature ahead of the 2009 and 2005.

  • GJE CRD 2008 and EP 2011; 3/29/2012-4/4/2012 (Bordeaux, France): Exotic, expressive and kinky. Already Asian spices, expensive tea, essence of raspberry and mushroom. Drinking almost too well for a young La Tache. Intense in the palate yet very airy. A bit of fizziness here as well. Incredible wine.

  • 2008 Domaine De La Romanee-Conti Tasting (Beltramo's, Menlo Park Ca.): The darkest, denser wine of the night....same exotic dusty nose which seemed deeper, more smoked. Unbelievable wine! But a sleeping giant. Richer fresh crushed dark berry fruit, sassafras, stems, smoked meat, compact minerals, power....all just waiting to burst out, but not just yet. You can really tell this will be something special in 10+ years. Amazing!
