We sampled the following wines at 38 Central on Friday May 18th. Thanks to David at 38 for the lovely selections he saved for us from a cooperage tasting the night before. These are all exceptional wines with scores and two short tasting notes.
Cheers, Ted and Tim

Bonnie's Mares 2006 Pinot 92
Charmes-Chambertin 2005 94 This burgundy has great nose a dark and rich wine, a little barnyard with leather, vanilla wafer and maple which is ever changing. The barnyard will fade in a few minutes. The palate is exquisite with velvet smooth fruit and wonderful supple tannin.

Ellero Pinot noir Blanc central otago new Zealand 2009 Pisa Terrace 96 This wine cannot be had in the US but I wish it could be. A clear silvery color with a nose of apples and floral hints.
