Seghesio Family - Zinfandel Sonoma County
Great wine. Took 90 minutes to mellow and drink but this wine is ready to go!
BV - Georges de Latour Private Reserve
Wonderful wine. Strong Bordeaux style with a wonderful nose. Between hour 1-2 it opened beautifully. However after that it faded. Notes of graphite, dark berry, chocolate
Dehlinger - Pinot Noir Altamont Vineyard (Old Vines)
Very nice bottle after a long day. Rich aromas of mild cherries, nice finish. Not a blockbuster but a solid bottle of Dehlinger Pinot
Ridge - Monte Bello
Had with a tomahawk steak with my mother. Not as powerful as the last 84 Monte Bello I drank a month ago; however, this was because we only spent about 1 hour letting it breathe. Cork was very brittle. This wine was closed for a long amount of time before hints of it's power started to open up. Currant, Raspberry, cocoa to the taste. Long, complex finish. Still a wonderful wine but to be consumed now. Don't hold any longer.
