Jack & Arden put together a wonderful evening of delicious food and great wines, and a few of us attendees contributed some bottles to enjoy as well. Great night!

Served blind. My guess was left bank Bordeaux. This had some must to blow off but once it did, this was my WOTN. We were all surprised when this was revealed. Potpourri, herbs de Provence, and dried cranberry on the nose. Good weight...strawberry and raspberries, rose petal, old fig. Faint notes of leather. Thanks for bringing

Certainly would garner a higher rating if about 10 years younger

1985 had been stored poorly yet we were all impressed with it having been unsure if it had survived mistreatment.

Incredibly put together, full of sweet fruit. Could be just at peak at over 30
