Bman, are you standing this so the blueberry skins fall to the bottom? Wink

Don't forget the toasted coconut shavings, Steve! Smile

Smart asses...... Razz

And..... yes......... Smile

But I like blueberries (toasted coconut, a little less so)
A good friend is moving away from Vancouver, so we're heading out to our favorite local bistro for a farewell-ish dinner tonight. I'm taking Krug Grand Cuvée and 1998 Haut Brion. He tells me he's bringing a First Growth either '82 or '86, and an Auslese Riesling.

He has never disappointed. I'm pretty excited to see what he'll pull; his Riesling selection is quite special. Smile
Thanks guys. I don't have much experience with aged wines like this, but it didn't have a lot of fruit left, tannins were fully integrated and there was a candy-like feel on the palate. I couldn't put my finger on exactly what type of candy, other than it was sticky sweet for a few seconds, which was replaced by an earthy/mossy finish.

I was happy to have been able to secure a birth year wine (especially a Monte Bello), so it was more an experience for my wife and me.

Oops. I thought you had more of the '87 Dunn.
Vinoevolo will be in the area and I snagged him some Chateau Musar from our local KGBO.
Pretty simple.
But anytime you and P want to visit, you are more than welcome.


And yes, I do have one more '87 Dunn HM. I'd love to put your name (and your P's name) on it for future enjoyment together!
