Wine hath drowned more men than the sea.
This is another in the series of events that we call "Once in a Lifetime" tastings that we do strictly for scientific purposes. We want to know how these wines are drinking today and more specifically how MAGNUMS of these wines are showing now at 19 years of age.
At Wine Watch we think that the Magnum is the perfect size bottle and when it comes to wine, more is always better. You really start to notice the difference that size makes when a wine reaches 10 years old or more. Wines bottled in Magnum format are always fresher, have more fruit and they have the ability to last sometimes twice as long as their 750ml equivalents.
Join us as we experience some legendary wines from the 2003 vintage in California all out of Magnum format paired to a special tasting menu prepared by chef Toni Lampasone. The fee for this tasting which includes dinner is $250 + tax, for reservations call 954-523-9463 or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
