I still have a bottle of 1993 Domaine Serene Evenstad standing. Had my first bottle last year and boy was it good.

Re: What bottle of wine did you open today?

2019 Hofgut Falkenstein “Meyer Nepal”. Has that tangy orange fruit profile across the midpalate and finish that I enjoy so much. Just as good out of 750 mL compared to magnum, but opening the latter earlier this month was more fun :)
