Auditioning the Reds

Posted on

The red wines. For a cellar tasting. We have to find something in our cellar at least ten years old. We looked at a very good Bordeaux from 2001. A Cos D’Estournel.

Not impressed. I don’t know why it doesn’t show well. It is a second growth Bordeaux. Bought as a future from MacArthur. It was thin, acidic, tannic and did not show any good undertones. It wasn’t bad, just disappointing.

I may have to bring a 2001 Linden. At least the Virginia wines can last for 12 years. Or more. Like our 1997 and our 1991. Or even the simple 2002 cabernet franc.

Pity the Bordeaux faded way too early. Anyone want a few bottles at a good price?

Retired, I am following my dream of living in quiet west Howard County, a rural oasis, not far from the urban chaos, but just far enough. I love to cook, bake, garden, and travel. I volunteer at Howard County Conservancy. I lead nature hikes, manage programs and show children all the wonders of nature, and the agricultural connection to their food.
