Going through some procedures and treatments at present. It's really one day at a time. Radiotherapy may affect my taste, but it should be temporary. There's lots of good wines I'm tasting, but nothing much from the cellar as such.
A great visit from the Southern Belle brought forward a 1988 Penfolds 'St Henri' Claret - 21 y.o. Gorgeously supple and integrated, yet fresh and lively with classic ripe dark prune and berry fruits, ultra smooth and silky. As good as St Henri can get! I've got to admit, I do like Penfolds with their slight excessive use of those American hogsheads, but this has won me over to the St Henri style.
I can only take a bottle at a time, but each one can be significant!
Hoping I'll add the occasional post through til the time I more active.
