32 years and going strong. Chanterelle and porcini with earth notes and crushed cherries and baked plum. Palate of dried blackberries and alluvial strolls, black currant and smoke. Cedar-cinnamon-tobacco triumvirate. Gloriously strong and hearty.

Perfectly aged, this California chardonnay from
Kistler was simply stunning! Notes of dried pineapple, lemon curd, and vanilla bean on the nose, with the complexity of preserved lemons, butterscotch, and toasted almonds on the finish. A golden Valentine's day treat! #liquidgold #Kistler

Erni #Loosen's first foray into #dry #Riesling came shortly after he took over the estate in 1987, and it is a lovely bottle that is nicely balanced with just enough residual sugar to avoid any austerity. It was the perfect food wine! #1990 #Spätlese — 8 years ago
Unlike anything I have ever tried, would never guess CdP but it indeed was and carried itself like a 10 year old, not a 24 year old wine. Made by the #legendary Henri Bonneau, arguably the most revered CdP producer/farmer after Rayas. A deep purple red color hinted that this was going to be interesting and not an old barny wine. The nose showed more mature notes but did not so much dominate over the youthful aspects. The nose showed aromas of dried and crushed berry fruits, earth, leather, and subtle spice notes. The palate took it up a few notches in intensity with youthful vibrancy, layers upon layers of flavor, full bodied, silky and ripe tannins, and a long and lingering finish. #chateauneuf #1990 #henribonneau — 9 years ago
