📷 and notes by @hansc008
As I know that @thewinestache
hasn't tried a mature Napa Cab before, I wanted to show him how well they can age. Last week @gary.faust
opened a 1978 BV Georges de Latour, which was still in perfect condition. So I was hoping the same for this bottle.
Unfortunately it was over. The nose had dark ripe fruits with a lot of port like notes. On the palate this continued, with a lot of tertiary notes, missing the balancing acidity.
What was interesting, after @koreanfusion
took a sip, she immediately came up with a dish that could complement this wine. She truly has a great palate.
Luckily we had many more better wines than this. Thanks again @terroir_matters
for having us at your poolside BBQ party. We hope to see you all again soon!
