1998 Antinori Solaia Super Tuscan. Lunch at RW. Drank alongside the '08 Rhoda I Tempranillo. Very different. This wine was excellent with pizza and drinking alone. Beautiful, softly layered wine. — 4 years ago

Magnum 1978 Heitz Cellar Martha's Vineyard CS. Lunch at RW w S&L DiM and P&S Co. This was unbelievable- blew our minds how much we enjoyed this wine. Loved that it was out of magnum and we all thought it was absolutely perfect to drink right now. — 4 years ago

Magnum 1999 Tenuta Dell'Ornellaia Masseto Merlot. Lunch at RW w S&L DiM and P&S Co. Drank after the '78 Heitz Martha's out of magnum. This wine was much, much bigger, as we expected and drank beautifully. Hard to say which we enjoyed more. Awesome. — 4 years ago

Case Basse di Gianfranco Soldera

Riserva Brunello di Montalcino Sangiovese 1999

1999 Case Basse di Gianfranco Solera Riserva Brunello. Drank at RW w group during staycation, after the '96 Giacosa Brunello. This wine was intense and big; complex and a total contrast to the leanness of the previous wine. Many more earthy notes than fruit (as had thought previously)- damp forest floor, green veg, leather, spices- along with some dark fruit we had trouble nailing down. This was awesome and the hit of the night. — 5 years ago

Harlan Estate

Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 1999

B
9.0

Magnum 1999 Harlan Estate. Welcome dinner for D fam at RW. Drank this after the '96 Araujo Eisele out of magnum. Unfortunately, this bottle was not stored properly and just didn't drink great. Unanimous that Araujo hit it out of the park and that this wine was not what it should have been. It was hot, lacked dimension, and the finish was abrupt and harsh. It should have been great, as we have been enjoying other '99s at this time, but not this bottle. — 4 years ago

1996 Bruno Giacosa Riserva Asili di Barbaresco. Dinner at RW during staycation. Interesting nose- graphite and pencil shavings and sour fruit. A little lean and not as big as in the past. Drank this before the '99 Soldera and glad we did. Totally enjoyed this wine. — 5 years ago
