Late last night, this was predictably soft, but not boring. Cashmere, pebbles and spice.

Really really a beautiful wine. Lots of prunes and hints of licorice and mint. Very smooth wine as well.

The great vintage showed through beautifully on this one. A mesmerizing nose and palate - dried fruits, red flowers, earthy tones. Not everyday an MW calls it his wine of the year (it’s only March, but hey!).

Clear garnet color with an orange rim. Delicate bouquet of flowers, red fruit and leather. Medium body, with acidity near the finish. Long finish. Opens nicely with a little bit of air. In a great place. Drink up.

A business lunch with Jonathan and Gillian at one of the great Italian restaurants of Los Angeles. Recent commentary implying that the 97 was a bit wobbly and on the downslope required I pull the cork on one of my small stash of Le Pergole Torte. Happy to say the reports of a deteriorating state seem exaggerated. Mature, yes - decrepit, no! A beautifully developed berry richness with a hint of tea rose in the nose. Supporting tannins are gentle, but firm. Not PC to buy this wine any longer, a pity, as I imagine later vintages will develop into something as inviting as this one in time. With Gino's fantastic array of pastas; lamb ragu, limonate, seafood. Loved the wine loved the food.
