This Single Vineyard could age for another 10 years, but I really enjoyed it at this stage.

This is a tasty red from Italy. Showing nice complexity with a nice mouthfeel. A little oxidized on the nose, though.

This 9 year old is still drinking nicely, but was probably better a year or two ago. If you have one, drink it now.

Alcohol is nicely integrated by now. Tasty and rich, very tangy and extracted.

Good right out of the bottle.
Thank you Elvira for sharing this with me.

A good food wine, but good by itself too. I paired it with a charcuterie board of meats and cheeses.

15.5%! I am being a prisoner of dogma perhaps, but I never knowingly purchase a wine that is 15% or higher. (I would make an exception for an Emmanuel Reynaud wine if I could ever find one.)

This is a nice surprise. This 16 year old is drinking very nicely now, and has at least 10 years in it.

Showing nice complexity with a nice, soft mouthfeel. The nose is strong and smells like blood, which is interesting.

I loved the intensity of the mouthfeel, but I expected more complexity at this age.

Always interesting to try these kind of wines. Thank you Sean for sharing this with me.

This 20 year old needs 45 minutes to open up properly, and remove the barnyard smell.

I've had this vintage a few years ago, and this is my last bottle. I'm glad it was such an enjoyable wine.

This is gorgeous and delicious. Rich, yet subdued. Elegant and smooth.

A little off balance, but has nice structure with a nice mouthfeel.

So today my son got accepted to law school, and it's time to celebrate with his birth year wine, that I kept for this occasion.

A pretty ruby in color with a wide brick/ brownish rim.

Wonderful nose of blueberries, blackberries, cooked strawberries, cedar, licorice, vanilla, cola, light forest floor, earth, light coffee, leather and Indian spices. Just beautiful.

What a wonderful 23 year old Zinfandel this is. Drinking so nicely and smoothly at this point. Showing great complexity with a great mouthfeel.

The high alcohol is very well integrated at this point. Delicious by itself or with food.

I did not decant it, and it was delicious right out of the bottle. Even better after 20 minutes.

Since I was drinking it (almost) by myself (covid), it lasted for 3 hours, and I really enjoyed it this whole time.

Elegant, rich and structured with a wonderful nose.

I paired it with a Charcuterie board of meats and cheeses.
