Seavey - Cabernet Sauvignon
What a transformation after 90+ minutes of patience. I almost poured the bottle out after the first glass or two. What started off rough, mostly oak and strongly medicinal on the nose turned into a beautifully aged, velvet glove of dark berry fruit, mild oak, slight earth and fully integrated tannins. Still enough weight for a steak dinner. I paid $29.99 a bottle about 4 years ago. On Seavey's website the same bottle is $195.00. Seems time to drink up but who knows may have a few more years if cellared properly.
Trefethen - Cabernet Sauvignon Oak Knoll Reserve
Thick consistency, very dark berry fruit, tannins and oak have mellowed so very pleasant easy drinker but won't last much longer
Robert Keenan - Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve
Gorgeous, smooth, drinking perfectly. A couple years ago had the pleasure of sharing a magnum of 84 Keenan Reserve and it was special. This wine delivers now and years down the road.
Gian Piero Marrone Sancarlo
Gained complexity and weight after a 30 minute decant. Bright acidity, tart red fruit, firm tannins and a pleasant rustic quality that makes it a great pizza wine. At 10 years would think this is at its peak.
Rasina - Brunello di Montalcino
Big, bold wine that doesn't give in much with an hour decant. Dark berry & tart red fruit, tobacco, leather, pretty oaky but overall enjoyable, balanced and compex. Barely showing age.
