2007 Dei - Sancta Catharina
Is probably a few years away from peak and comes in 2nd behind the San Roman in terms of the night's wines. This will be a fantastic and is going to be a beautiful pairing for red sauce italian, something with ground meats with some good fat. As others have stated the tannins were gripping until recent and I can see what that means, but underneath it all the sour cherry, black fruits and I do believe this is going to be elegant and not a punch in the face. See you in ~5 years!

1977 Quarles Harris - Vintage Port
This was a treat to find and special to drink. Threw tons upon tons of sediment and probably should have been filtered and/or decanted, but still "so this is what 38 year old port tastes like!" was my ultimate reaction. Am happy that the group was impressed and that this is still at a good place drinking wise.

2005 Maurodos - San Roman
For most this was the wine of the night, and how! The nose on this was so intense you would inhale and your mouth would water. This showed that vanilla, oaky, meaty, bloody intenseness of the toro wines, but not flabby. Where was the steak? (sorry Millenium!). Absolutely gorgeous, heavily extracted and with tannins that are probably only beginning to subside. I think this might be at its best but should do fine for another few years, effortlessly.

1996 Falesco - Montiano
A fantastic, aged mature Merlot, despite its age the provenance must have been excellent and had such depth of color and a nose of intense currant and black fruits. Didn't detect many tannins left at all. Mouthfeel was fantastic and while I thought this would be a less intense first wine it was nonetheless showing great.

2000 Abbe Rous - Banyuls Cuvee Christian Reynal
A triumph of sun-dried raisins gliding easily over the palate and way (way way) too easy to drink! Beautiful lastinng finish, and was like a maturing vintage port! Very impressive and something new for me. Interesting to experience a Grenache/Mourvedre type wine made in this style
