    March 30, 2019 - Winebar [1 Rosé, 3 Whts, & 8 Reds] from 03/29/19 + 5 Shared Reds (Vintage Wines Ltd., San Diego, CA): Dr. Tom, WAY more than anyone else, your periodic port contributions have educated me in an area where I had *ZERO* prior experience. :)

    Open for 3+ hrs in a sm tasting glass

    N: Notes of oranges, cherries, with undertones of flowers? Intensity lurking?

    P: Med body; Rndish entry with SWTISH frt BEAUTIFULLY counterbalanced by an acidity which subtly works its way into & through the LONG, delectably tangy/SWT finish. VERY lovely stuff! My EXC+/Exceptional-. 8,500 cases made. 97 pts WA, 94 WS (Suckling), and 16.5/20 ea Jancis Robinson & Decanter (Mayson).

    January 5, 2019 - First dinner of 2019! (Galletto Ristorante, Modesto Ca.): Not a huge Port fan...this was fairly sweet, viscous, with a array of spices and tobacco...licorice, dusty old cellar barrel, fig and fruitcake spice. Long and intense sweet finish. Went really well with my espresso, of all things!

    December 31, 2018 - Opened, decanted and drank over a week. Fruit too dominant and lacks acidity to match. After a week it even became undrinkable.
