    Jean had purchased a lovely leg of lamb recently, so tonight I roasted
    it with slivers of garlic inserted into cuts and olive oil rubbed on the
    outside. With the meat, rice, sauteed green beans and salad, I opened:

    1970 Leoville Las Cases St. Julien
    color: garnet at the center going orange at the rim
    nose: aromatic, pencil lead, flowers, tar, dark fruit
    palate: medium body, rich fruit, high acidity

    This very youthful wine was a pleasure to drink and accompanied the lamb
    grandly. This was part of a fairly recent auction purchase shared with
    Dale, and it lived up to all its expectations and more. The cork was
    sound, but saturated, and crumbled as it was extracted. 12% ABV and
    imported by Dietz Liquor of Wauwatosa, WI. All in all, a very
    satisfying Bordeaux.

    Ah! a trip down memory lane, my first ever LLC, bought adozen bottles at my
    first wine auction, cannot remember the price, but it was about 1980. Always
    a stunning wine, but not quite up the Latour.

    Sounds great. I remember this but haven't had since early 90s. It
    was terrific then, too. I'll bet its even better now!

    Hope Andrew got to taste! (Assuming he's learned to spit )

    There you've gone and done it again! Drunk up an eminently suitable
    lunch wine for the next time you come to Vancouver.

    I have just the wine to go with it, too - a 1975 Las Cases!
