Made and bottled by Norm Mini for Milt and Barbara Eisele
Opened at Bar Covell for a birthday.
Cork was dry and crumbled, but we got it out.
Dark red, very slight bricking around the edge.
Spices, chocolate, cherry liqueur, tobacco, black cherries, plums..almost port-like on the nose.
Smooth and velvety.
Plenty of acid, loads of fruit left.
Cherry, blackberry, dark chocolate, licorice
Probably the rarest bottle I'll ever drink, and totally delicious.
If the '71 Ridge Eisele is half as good I'll be psyched.
