2009 La Celestiere - Chateauneuf du Pape Tradition
Started out with sweet, harsh tannins, thought maybe it was a corked bottle, but it was just going through some shock but the fruit was coming through like a laser beam but it was underneath some green, vegetal notes. Eventually, 2 plus hours or so and with the help of the vinturi, this started showing some quality raspberry and cocoa dust. It was serviceable and might even be better the next day. Tried ~4 days after opening, fruit is less forward, lots of pain grille, herbs, far less tannic than earlier - would be great right now with some red meat accompanied with a sauce with a touch of sweetness.

2004 Numanthia - Numanthia
This absolutely needed more air, all the structure and power was there but was unfortunately showing very monolithlicly and the fruit was not emerging as I'd hoped - but with 4 more bottles I think we're looking at a dumb phase and not a wine over the hill.

2006 Tua Rita - Giusto di Notri
Really enjoyable, powerful and complex - lots of berries, some cocoa. I opened it several hours ahead of drinking but really needed time to aerate/decant. Beautiful wine though.

2004 Pahlmeyer - Merlot
My 2nd favorite wine of the day, powerful and rich, 11 years later not slowing down, as big as the wine is, not obnoxiously flabby/high alcohol. Delivers red and black fruits with nice intensity. Wish I had another, but maybe the 2005 and 2006 will be better...!

2001 Vieux-Telegraphe - Chateauneuf du Pape (La Crau)
Threw tons of sediment but this was the wine of the day for me, kir, cassis, sous bois, really focused flavors, tannins are smooth but the structure remains for this wine. This is top quality southern rhone goodness. I think it would still be drinking well for 5 more years before petering out. Well done!
