Pegau - Chateauneuf du Pape (Cuvee Reservee)
Wow, very very smooth. Opened up almost immediately out of the bottle. Full of juice and complexity. Felt like you were drinking a fur coat.
Aldo Conterno - Barolo Cicala
Delicious wine, hints of strawberry and raspberry. Medium body, great color, wonderful wine overall! Decanted for about 40 minutes, put back in bottle for transport to dinner. Had about 1.25 hours after opening. First sip out of bottle good, after re-opening, great.
Canalicchio di Sopra - Brunello di Montalcino
good, solid wine. not sure it was wonderful, but quite good.
Giuseppe Quintarelli - Ca'del Merlo Secco Bianco
All liked, very smooth fruity
Tua Rita - Redigaffi
Very good wine, lots of everything you'd want in a big fruit Merlot. This said, I cannot say that I was blown away. Decanted for one hour, re-bottled and transported to the dinner spot. At the end of the day, glad I drank it and will gladly drink again. Not sure I would be highly enthusiastic about paying $270+ per bottle. Hate to be so coin operated.
