  • 1977 Gould Campbell Porto Vintage 90 Points

    Portugal, Douro, Porto

    This showed signs of seepage, and the cork was quite crumbly. The wine was sound however. As always, this was dark, youthful, deep and full of life. The tannins are accessible, but this can continue to age for a couple more decades. Plums, raisins, spice and (my only complaint) a bit of a medicinal quality to it. My second bottle with that detracting medicinal note.

  • 1994 Alois Kracher Scheurebe Beerenauslese Zwischen den Seen 85 Points

    Austria, Burgenland, Neusiedlersee

    An interesting wine, with thick honey, peach compote and floral notes. Palate coating and persistent, but very soft, with almost no acidity left.
