Amarone della Valpolicella, 1978

Rinaldi

This wine is made from grapes harvested in various vineyards located on hills in the Valpolicella zone (Mezzane and Tregnago hills). Different sources and different grape varieties are important to obtain well-balanced wines with the fine structure that only a few single areas in the Valpolicella zone can provide. Notes: Color: strong ruby red. Clear and transparent. Bouquet: notes of vanilla and ethereal airs depending on the period of aging in the barrel; notes of sweet fruits such as currants, blueberries, cherries depending on the varieties of grapes. Flavor: wine with a velvety, raisiny character combined with the structure and typical stylish bitterness to give it good balance.

Barolo, 1978

Marchesi di Barolo - Riserva - Cannubi Muscatel

Barolo is known as the 'king of wines' and is made from the Nebbiolo grape. Heady aromas of rose, leather, vanilla, cherry, pepper, cranberry, strawberry. Fruits are perfectly knitted with the tannins and acidity. It's a powerful wine but remarkably subtle. Don't underestimate it and certainly serve it with food to show at it's best. Nebbiolo has naturally high tannins and acidity, so it will take on full-flavoured, rich foods no problem at all.

Chateau Gruaud Larose, 1978

St Julien, 2me Grand Cru Classe

Deep dark carmine with a brown edge. Deep, rich and mature bouquet with hints of ripe cassis, black berries and good oak. Firm wine with blackberries and good bitterness. The tannin is beautiful in harmony; little sticky and a little dry. No mistake about it: this is a superb wine, definitely considering the vintage. The wine is so full bodied and complex and has such a beautiful aftertaste.

Chateau Kirwan, 1978

3eme Grand Cru Classe

The 1978 Kirwan has a fully mature bouquet, animally and perhaps with a bit of leather in there, and cured meats. Yet there are vestiges of fruit tucked behind there and it is very attractive. The palate is medium-bodied, nicely balanced especially within the context of an austere vintage. This is a lovely old Kirwan that is a pure pleasure to drink

Nebbiolo, 1978

delle Langhe, Gaja - Vigna Veja

The Nebbiolo has a lovely earthy bouquet. The nose has cherries, dark cherries, tar and slight dried rose notes. Complex and layered. Nice acidity. Medium tannins still present. Cherries on the palate too. Nice finish. Great food wine. Nebbiolo is a fickle grape famed as much for its pale appearance as for its tannic character and produces some of the most perfumed and richly flavored wines. Though generally only medium-bodied, the wines possess rose and anise scented aromatics and deep flavors of cherry, orange peel and subtle green herb tones.

Quinta do Noval Nacional, 1978

Vintage Port

Reviews: Roy Hersh - For the love of Port.
The 1978 Quinta do Noval Nacional - exhibits a rather light ruby hue and offered a generous nose full of dates, raisins and a roasted coffee note that was most appealing. The flavours showed figs and currants with a backdrop of blueberry that lingered long on the palate. This was a youthful if not truly immature wine that needs lots more time in decanter or better yet, in cellar to reach its fruition.

Reviews
"Tasting Notes:
Heady, with delightfully nutty characteristics. Unctuous, appealing, long with an entirely seductive finish. Salty, umami, the taste of nature. So Complex. Sublime." IWC


The extended barrel ageing has given this wine a complex fusion of dried fruit and cedar notes. On the palate the wine is smooth and full bodies with plenty nuts and sweet fruit on the palate, fine balance. A tremendous finish which goes on.

1977 Graham's Vintage Port

Vintage Port MAGNUM bottle (Comes in individual case as illustrated).

Reviews
"...it's outstanding quality... Medium ruby-red. Aromas of milk chocolate, plum, mint and violet. Full-bodied, with medium sweetness and lots of berry and cherry fruit. Very fruity and fresh. Long and lively. Delicious now, but will improve."
James Suckling , Wine Spectator 2007

"Quite deep crimson but with an evolved ruby to brick rim. Rich, round nose – seems at first almost fully evolved and yet with a real punch of acidity and, right at the end a kick of tannin. Lots of interest and life. A can can dancer. Complete and with lots still to give."
