2006 Ramey - Cabernet Sauvignon Larkmead Vineyard
NJANFB - not just another Napa fruit bomb. Really...actually a very elegant, unpretentious, milk chocolate and black cherry, fast moving legs. Violet hue, plenty of beautiful acid - finish is medium length. Dusty tannins still linger, with herbal qualities mid-palate. Oak is well integrated, and not just all oak/vanilla. Very impressed for what was supposed to be a secret wine. Paired well with duck and lamb courses.

2010 Orin Swift - The Prisoner
Hedonistic fruit and fun to drink but was hoping for more of a finish to be perfectly honest. Really good structure otherwise and hid much of it's 15.2% ABV. Perfect match for pasta w/ sausage, peppers, olives, mushrooms with sweet and spicy flavors. Did unfortunately feel flabby in some moments but what a fun drink!

2004 Ontanon - Reserva
Powerful and masculine, expressing fruit immediately with softening tannins and throwing a bit of sediment. Blackberry, typical spanish smokey characteristics, herbs, grilled bread, great compliment to bbq lamb, Filipino lechon. Would definitely visit this spot in Logrono if ever in Spain! Last bottle.

2010 Ca'Nova - Barbaresco Montestefano
Light to medium, drinkable style Barbaresco with good medium mouth feel and sound structure. Tannins still hanging around. Pretty good value. Check the last bottle later this year.

2010 Chateau Husson - Chateauneuf-du-Pape Les Saintes Vierges
Ah yes more foreshadowing of what the greats of 2010 will be like. Popped and poured and all were treated to a fresh, fruit powered Grenache/Mourvedre blend whose dark violet frame poured forth a dry, smooth mouth feel plush with cassis, garrique and very little vanilla if any (not sure if any oak was used), but this was yet another perfect accompaniment to roast lamb - could this be the perfect kind of wine for it? A few more years would soften the tannins but the soundness of the wine is there with respect to flavor and structure. Who thought Costco would stock a 2010 CdP?
