    November 3, 2018 - Oxidative and definately off tonight. From Magnum.

    Looking closely there is a beautiful red/black fruited wine underneath with toffee, roasted cherry and smoke notes. Just not quite right tonight.

    November 3, 2018 - Unfortunately slightly oxidized, which was enough to mask a lot of the qualities. But this nevertheless seems to be a very full, very masculine, very dark fruited and monolithic wine that I would probably like quite a lot. Alas.

    November 1, 2018 - Dinner at Imperial Treasure Super Peking Duck. Light garnet. Prominent secondary and tertiary aromas on the nose, characteristic of aged Bordeaux. Smooth, well rounded tannins. Distinct forest floor and mushrooms on the palate, delicate fruit, very elegant. This is a graceful wine, and has aged well.

  • PanosKakaviatos Likes this wine: 98 points

    January 29, 2018 - Chinese food and old Bordeaux? Sure! (Q by Peter Chang): Popped and poured. At first it did not seem nearly as impressive as what I had described as a “100-point wine” that fellow wine drinker Kevin Shin brought to a dinner a few months ago in Washington D.C. at Black Salt restaurant. But I do believe that that previous bottle – coming from the same “batch” Kevin said – had been decanted beforehand, because this second experience grew into the red wine of the lunch, if not the wine of the lunch! Compared to the Palmer, a deeper and riper sweet plum and dark fruit nose, presaging richness and depth. Over time in glass – I stress, over time – it got better and more multilayered, because the pop and pour impression on the palate is underwhelming. Within about one hour in glass, a gloriously ripe and truffled aspect dominates like perfume, and then turns to fine dark chocolate (not a modern caricature of chocolate, but elegance enveloping opulence). And as last time, I just wanted more of it. Thanks Kevin.
