Old Bordeaux at La Fonda del Sol (NYC): Poured blind before we got into the Bordeaux. It's rich and quite ripe with a sappy plummy fruit and black cherries and a minty/herbal topnote, but there's also bright acidity beneath keeping it fresh and light on its feet. Very tasty.
Outstanding again. The nose on this is so lovely. Lots of fresh berries and cherries with a bit of cinnamon on the palate. Very smooth mouthfeel. Great flavors and concentration. IMHO, It's in it's prime drinking window. Drink now and over the next 3-5 years. 91-92 pts
A Christmas Tasting in Maine (Bangor, Maine): This wine was absolutely beautiful last night scents of red fruits, earth, graphite, spice, and subtle oak integration on the nose. In the mouth the fruit, acid, tannin balance was a thing of beauty as flavors of sour cherry, strawberry, plum, minerals, and baking spices rolled across the palate.
