1979 Pichon Comtesse - fruit largely faded, probably missed the window by five years

1988 Cos - delicious, fruit still somewhat in evidence, very harmonious

1997 Tig - excellent and drinking well (I was a bit surprised)

2004 Avignonesi Grandi Annate - interesting floral nose, taste underwhelming

2005 Don Melchor - okay, but it showed poorly relative to the rest (doh!)

1990 D'Yquem - lovely

Obviously you liked it a lot, but if you have/had more, would you hold?

I have a single serving bottle and a mag. I'm certainly not planning to open the latter anytime soon.

Uh... could you be a little more specific? Unless P & S only produced one wine in 2007, in which case I offer my apologies. Razz

It’s made from grapes. -)

I'm not a huge Silver Oak fan, but I thought this was very nice. This was brought to dinner by a friend and it was nice to try a bottle with 15 years on it. I was 90 on it, but everyone else at the table liked it a bit more than I did.
Took the family plus boy/girlfriends out to Scaramouche to celebrate our daughter's birthday:

1992 Dom Perignon
1992 Optima Cabernet Sauvignon Alexander Valley
2007 Outpost True Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon

Both '92 wines were in good form. I was a bit worried about the Optima but it showed just a small amount of bricking around the rim and tasted very good.

Scaramouche is expensive but I have to say it really delivers great value. Food, service and atmosphere were all superb!

Lovely.

I was thinking that you should have been there.

Yes. We needed another person with whom we could split the bread soaked in pig blood.
2012 Carte Blanche (Nicholas Allen wines) cabernet

I've seen these around a few LWS lately under $100 ($125 release) and wanted to try one at the wine bar with my Friday guys -we started a night early as no one had to work today. I've had prior vintages with another friend whose been on the list for years but have never seen it at retail prior. It looks like they might be clearing some back inventory.

Keep your eyes open for it particularly if you see well under $100 at some point. It's a beautifully crafted wine by Luc Morlet with great complexity and firm tannins suitable for aging. Still in its youth it should be stunning after another 5 to 10 years of cellaring.

Thanks. I was concerned that it may be heading downhill

Carte Blanche again. Just as good. Bringing a few home to bury in the back of the cellar.

I’ve always dug this wine. Super solid for the price.

And stop drinking wine without us. We need a Spo sighting to make sure all is right in this world.


Hey Azweise, if you have something going on let me know. Also I should start getting some things going and stop being such a recluse. Either way I'll talk to you soon.
