The 2009 is amazing.
No decanting, just opened up an hour or so before dinner.
Stunning Bordeaux. Fabulous fruit and character. If we have another bottle of this vintage, we'll try to push it back a few more years.
Trump ought to be shot as a traitor. People who vote for Trump in 2024 ought to be slapped, hard.

French beef stew — 3 months ago
A murky purple magenta color, but still appears young. Very aromatic with beautiful notes of blackberry, perfume followed by sandalwood, wet rich soil, pencil lead and sweet oak. Tastes young with tannins still present leaving many years for aging. Primary flavors of blackberry cedar and bitter sweet chocolate with secondary notes of cassis, new leather, pepper, dried herbs, and gravel giving it a long dry finish. Should pair with our Neapolitan marinara pizza and pasta dinner tonight. Looking forward to see what another several years will add to its flavor profile. — 22 days ago

At the vineyard for a tasting with Kathleen, Jay and Josie Barton, Jenny Rhodes. A bit less tannin than the 2020. Bolder than the estate Pinot Noir. — 2 years ago
A delightful white wine! Fresh and lively. We enjoyed it on Christmas Eve with Seared scallops & garlic-herb risotto. — 2 months ago
2007 comparative tasting of the 3 Leoville estates. Almost like a blend of the Las Cases and the Barton. — 3 years ago
