  • 2007 Rupert & Rothschild Baron Edmond – South Africa, Coastal Region (1/29/2019)
    WIML93

    Tasted non blind. Opened and served immediately. Followed over about two hours.

    Dark garnet color in the glass, clear looking throughout. Nose of violet, cassis, plums and boysenberries. Flavors of boysenberries, black cherries and plums. Medium to bright acidity, medium tannin, full bodied. Drink or hold.

    NOTE: I purchased this bottle at the winery and flew it home with me as checked baggage so the provenance is impeccable for this bottle. (93 points)

  • 1986 Château Mouton Rothschild – France, Bordeaux, Médoc, Pauillac (1/4/2018)
    WIML94

    Tasted non blind. Opened and served immediately. Followed over about two hours.

    Garnet color in the glass, clear looking throughout. Nose of leather, smoke, berries and cherries. Flavors of berries and raspberries. Medium acidity, medium tannin, full bodied. Drink with a little air to blow off bottle funk and help awaken the wine after a long sleep or continue to hold. In theory plenty of years ahead for this bottle just now emerging from hibernation.
