    September 21, 2019 - My last of six bottles of ‘88 Meyney purchased for $39 each at auction four years ago, and the last was also the best. Cork soaked almost to the top, but the wine was alive and sublime. Velvety mouth feel. Vibrant dark cherry, plum and black liquorice complimented by worn leather and cedar chest. Excellent acidity and still a little tannin hanging on. Wow.

    December 11, 2018 - This was worth the wait. Let it breathe for a while. Quite lovely.

    January 21, 2018 - Peach Farm after 2015 Bordeaux tasting. 29 years older and a very different beast. Fully mature in this relatively lean and tannic vintage and drinking well, especially if you enjoy some funk.
