Recently we had the opportunity to taste a 1988 Chateau Margaux. This wine was absolutely great! The color was still a dark garnet with a very forward nose of dark fruit and other scents I cant describe. The flavors were black pepper, fruit, cardamom and nutmeg. The tannins were very smooth and well integrated with a long finish. When you taste a wine like this you really see what aging a good Bordeaux is all about. It is so wonderful to taste complexity and elegance in a wine.
We enjoy wine, food and travel. Pull That Cork is a chronicle of our wine adventures, the food and wine pairings we create and our travels which are increasingly organized around wine.
