This is a young sommelier's adventure through wine, liquor and the world. You will find no ratings here. You will find somethings that are sometimes geeky, sometimes irreverent, and always presented in my own unique (and dyslexic) way. Hopefully, the content inspires exploration, a sense of adventure, a good icebreaker for conversation, and even a good sense of humor about the magical juice we call wine, the insane elixirs of ting the world of liquor, and the culture surrounding all of it. .

A little more First Growth Action

This time, a 1975 Chateau Latour. These wines always amaze me. It is always crazy to drink a wine that is older than you. It is hard to put an experience to a wine from a year that you were never born; no context, no life experience, no conception to what was going on in the world. Just the wine in the bottle and what you think; kind of daunting.

But, aside from that, the wine itself was insanely cool. It was on its decline, but even so had some great properties. The earthy qualities mixed with the raisined fruit made this a real example of what aged wine is; subtile, haunting, and incredibly interesting. If you get the chance to try something like this, take it!
