Another killer Wednesday Wine Committee lineup. As always, 1 sparkler, 3 whites, 4 reds and 1 dessert wine. All tasted blind. I guessed mid-80s Bordeaux. This was so youthful! Surprised all of us. 49yrs young and doing just fine. Great color...garnet core. Plenty of cranberry, old black cherry and new saddle leather. Definitely some herbal/mushroom characteristics on the palate but they are surrounded by more red fruit and underbrush at the finish. Structure is still very solid! Just incredible wine can taste like this at this age.

Out of a 3L. Pear tart attack. Light maderization. Surprising acid still intact. Amber color belies lingering subtleties of spice. Soft black licorice appears.

Good low neck fill and tight cork as Somm butchered it at **** restaurant. Nose plumed and scents of dried roses, green peppercorns, smoky fumes of tobacco, and loads of pencil shavings. Medium weight and good acid backbone. Color was medium and no hard browning at the edges. The wine drank perfectly about 45 minutes after decant and faded nicely from there.
