1999 Shafer - Cabernet Sauvignon Hillside Select
Had before dinner, not with food. Beautiful nose but too much grape and not a strong finish as I expect from Shafer HSS. Although it got better with time (2 hours) it just really put a wow on me at all. Disappointing in relation to what I expect from Shafer.

2007 Pisoni - Pinot Noir Estate
A good Pisoni but not one of their greats. Beautiful nose that even our waiter to smell 5 feet away. Notes of bright cherry and light graphite. Pleasant but a light, quick finish with no lingering to it. Although R-P says that this could go another couple of years I think this is at or past peak. Drink now.

2006 Mollydooker - Cabernet Sauvignon Gigglepot
Kind of a disappointing bottle from Molly Dooker given the bench strength of their wines. Very light on the nose with very little fruit on it, slight notes of red berries, acidic taste, and no finish. After an hour or so it opened to stronger notes of the above but really didn't do much for me or my friends drinking it. Everyone agreed it was the least favorite Dooker we've had in a while.

2007 Pisoni - Pinot Noir Estate
Solid 95 effort from Gary and sons at Pisoni. This bottle took some time to open up, was very tight on the nose and on first taste. Notes of bright fruit but with something brooding in the background. An hour later it started to open with silky flavors of chocolate, spice and bolder berries. Truly an enjoyable wine.

2009 Dehlinger - Syrah Goldridge Vineyard
Had with Pork Tenderloin and a nice chocolate dessert. This wine is still too young to drink; however, it had some nice legs to it. Nice fruit, slightly lead pencil to it and opened up over an hour and a half. I won't drink another bottle of this for another 3+ years. Hold it if you got it.
