Marchesi Biscardo - Amarone della Valpolicella Classico
Faint hint of cork mostly blew off after decant. Plenty of sediment; gave an unfiltered look, although we probably didn't get it upright soon enough after its 16-year nap. Definite Amarone VA and raisiny notes, though subtle and not intense. Still good acid and tannin backbone, but the fruit was tired. Probably a little over the hill.
Iron Horse - Brut Vintage
Tasting as good as ever, but losing the fizz. We've got two left and will be drinking soon.
Volker Eisele - Cabernet Sauvignon
This wine has still got game, but don't dally - its prime will not last much longer. Excellent wine by a fine Chiles Valley District producer.
McPrice Myers - Altas Vinas
Smoke, tar, ashtray, touch of forest floor, some black fruit, wow! Huge wine - a style we don't normally gravitate toward - but the layers and balance captivate here. Still has plenty of time left, but sadly, this was our last bottle.
D'Arenberg - Grenache Derelict Vineyard
Garnet with brick robe. Lovely, intense eucalypt nose. Tightly wound, red fruits and smoke tones on the palate. A bit coarse initially but smoothed out as it woke up in a decanter. Not sure if the fruit will outlive the tannins though.
