Happy 50th birthday! I always ask what were you doing when you drink a wine this old.

I am told by Somm buddy who brought this bottle, this To Kalon fruit. Excellent fill line. This is 12% ABV. 👏👏👏

Color is brickish on the edges but the color inside is still beautiful & solid.

This a wine not to decant or a short one and pour it out w/ 6 people. It does get better in the glass.

The fruit is old but still ripe; blackberries, black raspberries, baked strawberries, stewed plum/cranberries, baked rhubarb, almost watermelon notes, mid berry cola, steeped tea, dry crushed rocks, dry twig, dry tobacco, sandalwood to some cedar, light dark spice notes, dry herbaceous notes, pine bar, some tarriness, anise, dark forest, dry leaves, some v/a-bandaid, dry river stone, decade red, dark, florals, excellent acidity, great evolution, balance, still has tension, with elegance & smart polish that lasts a minute.

12% ABV. 👏👏👏

Bottle acquired recently from the winery.

What a treat to drink well stored old Napa Cabernet. Will hold another 3-5 years.

Domaine Robert Chevillon

Les Vaucrains Nuits-Saint-Georges 1er Cru Pinot Noir 2011

2011 vintage. Opened-not decanted-and tasted after three hours. Medium body. Nearly as much stuffing as a holiday fowl and the nose was replete with orange citrus and baking spices. Has at least another decade of excellent enjoyment if not two. 4.18.24. — a month ago
