Marshall - Juliet Peery
I picked up a case of this several years back on the recommendation of a friend. This is the first bottle I have tried and, frankly, I was blown away by this little gem. It is drinking extremely well with nearly a perfect balance of fruit and tannin but I suspect could age a wee bit longer still and still be wonderful. Subtle oak on the nose, lots of berry and some vanilla. A real surprise that would hold it's own with it's Bordeaux cousins.
Tua Rita - Giusto di Notri
Lovely with lots of fruit still
Joseph Phelps - Insignia
Still drinking wonderfully but I suspect starting to fade. Paired with a 1997 Insignia which was a tad better.
Neal Family - Cabernet Sauvignon
Neal is consistently wonderful wine. This 04 is probably at its peak with a great nose, still tons of fruit/jammy berries (so could probably go awhile longer in the cellar) and a great food wine. I had my first bottle of Neal at Spago in Beverly Hills 6 or 7 years ago and have been a fan ever since.
