2003 Château Lafon-Rochet tonight with USDA Prime Top Sirloin, mashed potatoes, and a roasted kale and beet salad with pomegranate. Terrific wine that continues to kick tail. It has lots of black cherry and black currant fruit, but oodles of acidity, leather, earth and zero oak whatsoever. Love this stuff and I could see myself drinking this if I was in Bordeaux at a nice dinner.

I am not a professional wine taster, nor do I have any professional training in the wine trade. I am a wine enthusiast who has spent countless hours tasting wines of many different styles. My palate is not aligned with a single wine critic, and I call all wines "as I taste them". My site is a source of tasting notes and wine recommendations as well as warnings without conflict of interest. You'll just have to figure out how your palate aligns with mine. My palate generally tends to veer towards Old-World wines that put a premium on terroir and lovely balance and finesse, rather than raw power...please keep that in mind as you read my notes.
