Default TN: 89 Haut Medoc with rib roast

So just Betsy, David and I for Boxing Day dinner. Betsy made a small
rib roast and Yorkshire pudding, along with broccoli and some leftover
kale/polenta cake. Wine was the 1989 La Lagune (Haut Medoc). Cork was

punched a hole with the AhSo and used a decanting screen. But color
was excellent, so no apparent oxygen ingress. Dark fruits, cedar,
cured tobacco. Medium length, mostly resolved tannins, fully mature
and drinking well. Nice showing. B+

Grade disclaimer: I'm a very easy grader, basically A is an
excellent*wine, B a good wine, C mediocre. Anything below C means I
wouldn't*drink at a party where it was only choice. Furthermore, I
offer no*promises of objectivity, accuracy, and certainly not of
