- Dinner in HK with TC, Charlotte, Antoine and C.
- Happy birthday to me!
- Bread & Roses. Phaedra's favorite in Paris.
- Dark purple hue, nose of ripe black fruits currants, sugar coated cherry, violets, licorice, truffle, wet wood. Taste of ripe black fruits, cigar wrapper, jam, expresso bean. Finish with plum, light tobacco leaf. Tiny bit of heat, medium finish. Bit one dimension, not complex enough, smooth, easy on the palate. Expand deliciously, with strong currants and cream bulee. More better structure.
- Gentle smell of black berries, chili, lavender, fresh grass, a hint of fresh tomato, ham. Medium to full bodied with dark ruby/purple color. On the palate, okay, taste of strong tobacco, mint, forest floor, slightly strong tannin in the middle, not really silky. Decent finish, lasting 20 sec. Wonderful
