grande premiere

1998 Château Lafite Rothschild

Merry Christmas, everybody! I celebrated in style with some big boss Bordeaux. Cassis, blackberries, tobacco, eucalyptus, mushrooms, espresso, mahogany, leather, and cigar on the nose. Still so fresh, despite being almost 20 years old! Red and black cassis on the palate with new leather, young tobacco, and mushroom. Quite perfumed and just so so sophisticated (like me). Santé!

You ever notice when you speak in another language and your shitty mood is immediately improved?

2002 Château Léoville-Las Cases “Grand Vin de Léoville du Marquis de Las Cases”

This is some special stuff - Léoville Las Cases is a neighbor to the famed Château Latour and by many accounts, deserves to be a Premier Grand Cru Classé as well! Blackberries, cassis, purple potpourri, eucalyptus, leather, and meat with fruit compote on the nose. Definite minerality on the nose as well (even a bit tinny on first opening the bottle). Ripe and rich blackberries, cassis, and perfumed violets on the palate with a hint of cocoa and a lovely finish. Nice acidity and fine tannins. Delicious!

It’s done, everybody. It’s officially done. Monk of Milkweed is completed and I have another piece in my filmography. Thank you all for the support; I hope you enjoyed the ride. 

I’m currently submitting to film festivals so I’m keeping it private until I hear back from them. If I get into any local ones, I’ll let that be its grand premier before revealing it to the public. 

Until then, wish me luck. And if you know of any film festivals that you’d like to see it in, give me a holler. And if you really, REALLY need to see it right now, well, send me a message and say pretty please.
