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 as we have none of these wines on the table this evening for sale.  We want to know how these wines are drinking today and more specifically how MAGNUMS of these wines are showing at the moment.

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. 

All of the wines on the table tonight are from my personal cellar and to celebrate my 53rd year on this planet I will be opening the 1953 La Mission Haut Brion out of Magnum.  I received a OWC case of this wine from a cellar a few years ago and we immediately put a tasting on the calendar to try a bottle.  That Nicolas bottling was one of the best old Bordeaux that I had ever tasted so I saved this last bottle for a later date but it is time now to take this one down!!

The rest of the line-up of vintage Magnums all have significance and you know on my b-day we will be popping some 1969 vintage bottles!!  This is a “Once in a Lifetime” tasting you do not want to miss!!

Join us as we experience some legendary wines out of Magnum format paired to a special tasting menu prepared Chef Toni Lampasone.  This tasting is $895 + tax, for reservations call 954-523-9463 or e-mail andy@winewatch.com.

For those of you that can’t make it I have included all the magnums that we have in the store on this offering and they are all on SALE!!!
