1998 Azienda Agricola Sant' Elena - Ros di Rol
Wish there was more here, past its prime. There's a big nose, very bordeaux, some dark fruits, but kind of muddy. Was probably better 6 months back. Oh well :)

2010 Vieux Lazaret - Chateauneuf du Pape
Gorgeous and drinking very well - dark purple hue, raspberries and vanilla/creaminess from oak. Some rosemary/garrique. Flavors are bright, concentrated and aren't holding back, perhaps even more ready from half bottle. Acid is vibrant, will probably be more elegant once it settles down. Great compliment to flavors of Persian cuisine.

2009 Vitalonga - Terra di Confine
Still good with powerful nose, wasn't as thrilled as the first go around. Nose is herbal, mint and milk chocolate, red fruits, raspberry, cherry. Finished very dry but tannins soft. A solid drinker but no wow factor - and that's fine too!

2005 Casanova di Neri - Brunello di Montalcino Tenuta Nuova
When an estate makes good wine in a somewhat off vintage the result is a wine that's more accessible sooner and that's what this gorgeous thing was! Decanted for ~30-45 prior to drinking (while we had ouzo), the nose sang immediately and the depth was fantastic. The mouth feel is great, smooth and creamy, the finish is dry but your mouth is just filled with the perfume of the red berry fruit, mint, earth, oak, herbs. One of the best Sangiovese I've had in a long time. Even more air would be have been better - went great with the soutzoukakia (meatballs) in red sauce. You can tell the Italians make this for the food. Will probably keep kicking for 5 years. If this is the 2005, how will the 100pt 2006 be? Can't wait!

2007 Garagiste Mystery Wine 4
The other wine of the night was a good foil to the Termes. This is definitely new world, and feminine, floral and certainly a lot more open on the Pop 'n' pour. Jammy, blackberry fruit, tannins are subsiding, this and next might be the year for these guys. A hedonistic steak wine - would be curious to seal it up and try on day two. One more bottle to go.
