1992 B.V. Tapestry. As finished as a wine can get. Great nose full of violets & roses and a killer finish. Would have put it into the classic range except it seemed to have lost just a tad of fruit.(Turned the corner) A solid 92. 1994 B.V. Tapestry.Great nose as the 92 but still needing another 1-2. Drinking beautifully and another 91/92. 1995 Pride Mtn.A real baby. Needs another 2-4 but has a solid core of fruit to manage the silky tannins.
Foley scores again. 91, with potential. 1994 Hess Collection. A wine with lots of muscle but balanced. Fruit driven and still needs 1-2 to peak. 90. Beringer 1994 Knights Valley. A really fine example of this super vineyard. Ready-Teddy with all components in place. Great nose, brite fruit, and a strong finish. Killer K.V. 91.
And the wine for the road 1997 Merryvale Profile. Not a whale of a lot to add to the accolades this hummers' received. Deserving of its' press. Lovely aromatics still evolving, an entry as smooth as Janes', center with muscle, and a solid 5-lapper finish. Even made the delay on the freeway
pass without one gripe. Needs another3-5.Kick-Patootie juice. 96. And then after the concert the Pradel Howell Mtn 1994 forgotten before, made the perfect get down off the summit wine. Deep mtn fruit flavors with matching nose, heavy-weight center palate and a surprisingly long 4-lapper finish. To me the surptise of the nite (or I was so high after the concert I'da given a 92 to Sutter Home White zin). Can probably stand another 1-2 with max cellaring. 90. Forgot the 70 Fonseca so we had our Port as described summers' else. Maximum Nite. WW

BRW and I had lunch today and I brought the last of the wines that done the sucker in....the 94 Markham. So far I'm estimating it's only cost him a mere 100G. An absolutely amazing bottle. Still as luscious as the 1st time we tried it but with a stupe-iden-dious nose
that filled our end of the bar. Still as alive as Jimminy Cricket. Can't believe all 8-10 cases have vanished. Must be a Masked Markham bandit in my neighborhood. WW [img][/img]
