A very special bottle
Over the week end we tried a bottle of Sequoia Grove Semper V with some friends for Open that special bottle night. This is a Bordeaux blend that is only produced in exceptional vintages and to date has been made only in 1999 and 2002. I have one bottle of the '99 which we found in St John, Virgin Island several years ago and I had purchased two bottles of the 2002 on release from the winery. Since I am drawn to the fruit of California, this was a natural for the special bottle night. It did not disappoint, big bold and rich with some air. It is a pricey bottle, but if you can find it, well worth the money for that very special night.
