1999 Paoletti Non Plus Ultra Napa Valley Red Bordeaux Blend

This bottle has been in my cellar for many years. Is this the last one around? It is still vibrant and strong, no age deterioration. Minimal sediment. Dark red, full bodied, excellent dark berry fruit flavors, medium tannins that soften an hour after opening. Easily compares to the best Bordeaux wines.

Dark red, full bodied, rich dark berry fruit, oak, medium tannins, high but integrated alcohol—an excellent wine. It definitely improved after opening and exposure to the air. Very oaky and alcoholic when first opened, had some doubts, but every hour it improved, until wow! To my surprise I found a few bottles at Costco? Going back for more.

Every once in a while the Billings Costco gets what seems to be some warehouse clearances from other Costco stores. Or maybe some winery clearances. Some high end wines. Keeps me coming back. When the oil boom was going on here a few years ago we got lots of big time expensive wines in Costco. Not so now.

I let the wine breathe two hours after opening. Kept it cold. Complex scents and flavors opened up. There is some oak and some butter, but subordinate to the excellent fruit. Good acidity helped the long finish.

    9/4/18, 4:38 PM - I appreciate the comment letting me know that I had a typo in my original rating. I intended to give this excellent wine a 93 rating, but it got posted as 63 points. Wrong! I have edited my tasting note to post the correct 93 rating. That teaches me not to use my iPhone to post tasting notes.
