Reply to "TNs: Offline with Fox, Joea and RonnieRoots: Shafer 1998 HSS and others..."

Another night of great fun! This time with some very tasty food - thanks again Stevie for inviting us into your home and preparing a great meal!

It was also great to meet Fox for the first time! Thanks for bringing some great wines that I do not have an opportunity to try often (if ever again).

The Shafer HSS lived up to its reputation even for an off vintage - lots of dense fruit and spice.

I was suprised how approachable the Isocoles was for its age. Also, for an off vintage, I thought the wine had decent concentration and nice texture. Ditto for the Summus.

The Portugese red really started to come together just as everyone was leaving. I stayed to finish my glass!

The port and icewine matched nicely with the incredible desserts!

Fox, I hope you are having a great time here in Amsterdam and beyond! Let us know when you back in Amsterdam so we have an excuse to drink more good wine!

Until next time!!!
