2008 Orin Swift - The Prisoner
I'm coming to a point where I'm becoming less and less a fan of this wine. 2008 might have peaked. Over graped flavors hit you immediately, no memorable finish.

2009 DuMOL - Pinot Noir Russian River Valley
An absolutely phenomenal bottle from DuMol. I have a couple of these left and after last night's dinner and experience I really have to figure out where to drink the next 2-3. Notes of dark chocolate, long, silky, deep, romantic finish. Nose of dark booming berries. Subtle, big but not overwhelming on first smell. The whole thing just came together throughout the whole dinner.

2008 Orin Swift - The Prisoner
Decent fruit bomb Napa cab. Crowd seemed to like it but I though it was a little too tannic and not as layered as the previous one could have been. Good wine, not great.

2009 Dehlinger - Pinot Noir Goldridge Vineyard
Beautiful wine with rich notes of slate and plumb. Long finish and very layered in the overall experience. Well done on this wine
