Private Collector
Mark's wine epiphany while working as a busboy in Sarasota in 1979 started a wine geek collector syndrome which has guided him through many personal taste transitions and eventually dumped him amongst the vines of Burgundy, the Rhone, Champagne and the California Coastline.

2009 Evening Land - Chardonnay Burgundy
non-descript chard, nothing standout, not oaky but not "there"

(Tasted Jan 1, 2015)


2003 Auguste Clape - Cornas
This seemed off, a bit flabby, grainy and rustic. Not exciting flavor/texture wise. Little aromatic interest. A symptom of the vintage? A bad bottle? NR

2007 Grand Veneur - Cotes du Rhone Reserve
Good everyday CdR, easy to drink

1998 Chateau de Fonsalette - Cotes du Rhone Rouge (Reserve)
Very pretty, elegant cdr which speaks more to cndp and the deft touch of Rayas than a typical cdr. Drinking well but plenty of time left. Dare say it, burgundian in texture and appeal.

(Tasted Jan 1, 2014)
