So, to deal with being stuck inside I have begun expanding my pallet. Found a decent wine, Back Home Again Red Wine. Very light as red goes, sweet but not oppressively so, and under twenty bucks. Overall would recommend. Anyway go go gadget wine thread.
Yesterday I opened and thoroughly enjoyed the last 1961 Château Brane-Cantenac from my collection. It was absolutely devine even though it was probably just past its peak. There was the typical Margaux velvety glove as well as rich ripe fruit from the nose all the way through to the finish. This was definitely an almost perfect time to enjoy this jewel as I know it was just going to diminish from this point on. Brane-Cantenac is also the first Bordeaux I ever purchased as a 1971 vintage back many years ago when I first got serious about wine.
