Mount Veeder - Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley
Medium oak. Lots of cherry and boysenberry notes on top. Medium finish and a medium ruby color. Well structured tannins rounded out this fine bottle.
Barbi - Brunello di Montalcino
All a brunello should be......that is all. Brought this bottle back from Italy in 2002. Waited a long time for it to sit and be ready. It was outstanding.
Ghost Block - Cabernet Sauvignon
This bottle was outstanding. Big caramel, tobacco, cherry, and subdued tannins ruled the roost with this cab. Had a long finish that lingered well. It was a treasure to enjoy and am looking forward to my 2007 as well. Nice juice.
Chateau Souverain - Cabernet Sauvignon Alexander Valley
This wine has held up well and was Not past it's prime. Oak was subdued and cassis, cherry and leather were prominent. We seved this to ourvguests on our wedding night in 2002 and 10 years later in 2012 it still drank well.
Ugo - Chianti Classico Riserva
Great Sangiovese. All you would expect from a chianti rieserva. Nicely done with big tannins. Short finish but didn't expect more.
