    June 11, 2019 - Spottswoode Dinner with Molly Sheppard & Ray Kaufman (Amuse Bouche, 22/F Hennessey Centre, Wan Chai, Hong kong): Translucent red-purple. Nose is lightly lifted and almost Burgundian... woodland strawberries. Palate is sweet and plummy.... seems to have out-lived itself. Pleasantly reverberant and long on the finish. From the winery but something not right. Only one bottle served because Molly rejected the other one.

    May 23, 2019 - Luis doesn't show up for his own tasting (Tilia): There is the essence of blue fruit in this wine. There was some mint, cedar, bell pepper.

    May 23, 2019 - Mostly Older WTDS at Tillia (Tilia, Mpls): Very dark red color. One hour decant; drank a glass over an hour plus. Lots of eucalyptus up front on the nose and palate, pretty dark mountain fruit, very aromatic, cassis, blackberry and blackberry liqueur, medium full bodied. Really good, though it shows some heat on the finish after an hour. These have been very consistent; plenty in the tank. 92+ to 93pts.

    March 30, 2019 - Let's put it this way. Out of 25 different cabs, Barolos, and Syrah/Grenache blends this was absolutely the WOTN. Lots of dust and must on the nose, some cedar and forest as well. However, a romantic explosion of blue and black fruit and that perfect aging that only a 25 year wine provides. Made me think back to 1995 and where I was in life, my journey and how far things have come. Amazing to see this wine just got phenomenal over the same time.
