1997 - Opus One Proprietary Red Wine Proprietary Blend

Opus failing to produce quality in the year of the decade.

Now, I drank this bottle one year ago.  The wine was only 9 years old (& quite pricey might I add).  This wine behaved like a wine passes it's prime.  Some fruit w/ a hint of mushroom & leather.  The wine did finish well.  I was expecting more.  I'm so happy I've kept my notes.  The wine buying public must be warned!!

1964 - Lynch Bages  Bordeaux Blend

Gracefully aging elegant glass of red velvet

My third bottle and I consistantly taste hints of leather & fruit.  Velvet like smoothness with a nice steady finish.  This wine has reached it's point of maturity & stayed there.  Age has been a great influence on this wine.

1970 - Mommessin Charmes Chambertin Pinot Noir

Still offering plenty of fruit after 37 years

Certainly passed it's prime.  However, still a joy to drink.  Still quite a bit of red berries & almost a floral nose.  A perfect example of a quality producer combined by a killer year paying off for decades to come.

2006 - Giacosa, Bruno Arneis Arneis

The best white wine from Italy under $30

This dry well rounded wine should be served to people who turn their noses up to Italian whites.  Pleanty of character with a great nose.  Medium bodied.  An excellent introduction to Bruno Giacosa's vast portfolio.
