markoldman If jet-set had a fragrance, it would be @FonsecaPort 1970. Imagine the smell of Jackie O's purse from that year: expensive Italian leather, spicy tobacco, brown sugar-and-bergamot perfume, maybe a sprig of mint from the Onassis compound. Fat and sweet, with a delightfully serious, old-school label. 2d

markoldman midnight snack last night: 11 liters (a 5L & a 6L) of Chateau @mYquem 1983 shared among thirsty friends. Ravished you with marmalade and apricot flavors that filled the mouth with a nectarous, almost erotic intensity. Someone opened a big bag of Cheetos (@ChesterCheetah) and a new favorite food & #wine pairing was discovered: '83 #Yquem and #Cheetos - sweet-salty, high-low bliss. 1w
  •   evanlodes That was an epic evening. And thank you for the @my_vcanter that was used to open them 1w
  •   markoldman @evanlodes epic indeed. The empty 6L is now safely in transit and soon will be ready for you to display. the ultimate kitchen bling 1w

markoldman The "MZ-1": not a Japanese sports car but a rare, non-vintage #Heitz #Cabernet that was bottled in 1975 with grapes half from the winery's famed Martha's Vineyard plot. Faded black cherry, eucalyptus, and cigar box on a medium-to-full frame, with a spicy, enduring finish that makes one dream back to the pioneering Heitz #wine of the 1976 Judgement of Paris era. 2w

markoldman @Williams_Selyem #Pinot Noir Sonoma Coast 2001; Like @MickJagger, this light, mature #Pinot can still do the rooster. Redolent of ripe cherries and licorice; as silky and earthy as Pamela des Barres’ kiss. 3w
