    September 16, 2017 - No formal note but I recall thinking he 1990s from Rhone are just massive. So concentrated and vibrant still. Drank for Allen's birthday with Luz and Elisabeth.

    May 20, 2016 - Birthday Celebration Chateauneuf-Du-Papes (Bill's, Wilmette IL): This just wasn't feeling right. It was likely over the hill as the tones were on the more faint side with the acidity also being somewhat tinny.

    June 2, 2012 - Very attractive, typical 1990/ warm vintage with ripe fruits Pape. Powerful medicine, pencil shavings and ripe fruits in the nose, very complex. Well balanced, good acidity/ fresh on the palate with 'Garrigue', meat and secondary notes. Matching well with the prime rib beef in SE Asian style (spices).

    June 18, 2011 - Cork still intact and in good shape on popping.Very mature nose with some funky notes and forrest floor.Light bodied,almost fully resolved tannins,giving some forrest floor,smokey/roasted notes,funk and a little fruit.Short finish.Still drinkable but clearly started to go downhill.Time to drink up.

    February 4, 2008 - A very nice, fully mature Chateauneuf. Nose has smoke, ash, a touch of raisin but lots of lovely gamey red fruit too. To taste it is sweetness all the way - no pepper left, though a little Grenache oatmeal and a touch of raisin suggesting this has gone the full length already. Ripe, medium depth and a lingering gamey finish. Excellent wine.
