As for w + a, as it happens, I own a little Gruaud myself, though it's much younger than Rob's....

Yummy. I hope it shows well. How long do you plan to decant?


I'm taking it to a restaurant next Friday, so likely for sediment and long enough to have a pre-dinner drink. I wouldn't imagine for very long.

It's ready to go. Just decant for the sediment. Berries will fill the air as you decant.

Please give us your impressions on both these. Especially the QB.


On this night, the 2004 QB was the superior of the two. In it's ideal drinking time imho.
Red berries, sour cherry and leather with silky tannins and a long leisurely finish.
It's hard to imagine a Brunello any better than this (except an '85 Col D'Orcia).

Thanks. I have 6 of the QB left and can't think of anyone I'd want to share them with than you.

2004 is an excellent vintage for Brunello. Many are drinking very well right now.

Make sure you use a screen for this one. That's sure to throw a ton of sediment, even with standing. Wink

Hoping this shows well for you! It might be my favorite all-time Cali Cab. The best bottles are just pulse-poundingly spectacular.


Was concerned given the ullage and the state of the cork, but it was really pretty outstanding. Still very young though as it kept shifting in the glass. This wine has a long life ahead of it I think.

Eek

Not a bad lineup I suppose Smile

Two different events.

I'm not expecting miracles from the Pichon Baron, but I'm hoping the Ridge is a winner.

I opened another '78 Pichon Baron from the same source about 18 months back and it was decent. And I opened an '85 Monte Bello around the same time and I noted that it was "solid but not spectacular".
