Good color; fairly big nose of black fruit, cedar, and leather which followed through on the palate. A big wine with still significant tannins but enough fruit to balance. Still tastes young and vigorous. A very good bordeaux but lacks the finesse and complexity of the best 89s. Will continue to drink well for several more years.
Henri Gouges - Nuits St Georges Les Vaucrains 1er Cru
Consistent notes. Pretty, med.-dark ruby to mahogany red color; full nose of bing cherries and red & black fruit, leather, spice & earth; firm on the palate with prominent acid, tannins are softening, plenty of fruit to provide balance; long finish. Very good but not fine - I've had better Burgundies from Gouges. Should continue to drink well for a few more years.
Trimbach - Riesling Cuvee Frederic Emile
Consistent notes. Medium golden color showing some age but bright and crisp on the nose and palate; aromas of citrus (lemon & lime), melon, diesel and minerals; impressively rich on the palate with similar flavors, wonderful balance and a stony crispness; elegant, complex flavors on the long finish; a wonderful dry riesling second only in quality to Clos St. Hune, it should continue to drink well for several more years.
Marquis d'Angerville - Volnay Les Taillepieds 1er Cru
Consistent notes. Very clean, a bit austere; pure, true to type; med.-full body; fragrant, stylish, very Pinot nose; very lovely fairly intense black fruit and smoked meat on the palate; lots of depth & vigor; rich at the end with a long finish; ready but lots of life ahead if well stored.
Krug - Grande Cuvee
From a purchase in 2007. Cont'd development in bottle with a light amber color; still youthful and crisp. Nice aroma of lemon & tropical fruit; Clean, complex, & elegant on the palate; med.-rich with some creamy/yeastiness but less than typical of Krug. Long elegant finish. It has shown a slow increase in maturity and expansion of flavor with a more caramelized/toasty/yeastiness in the 5 years since I purchased it. Despite being "NV", this requires 4-5+ years in bottle to reach its potential.

As of 3/1/14, apparently there is no longer a way for the community to buy and sell wine off-site through Vinfolio, and transferring the wine to Vinfolio first would result in being charged storage fees until it is sold and...
