Unbelievable bottle of Shiraz! Very smooth almost Grange like in body, but very vibrant and lively. Tons of fruit on the nose and in the mouth. Tannins are very present , but not overwhelming. The finish was very long and lingering. This was a fantastic bottle of wine! Lot sof years ahead with this vintage.

2006 Maybach Family Vineyards Cabernet Sauvignon Materium Oakville

Drank with dinner. Dark and inky wine. Pronounced plums, blackberries, and even hints of vanilla and anise at the finish. Wine is extremely complex right now, but is very straightforward. Tannins are very present. Guests enjoyed this Cabernet very much and considered opening my last bottle of 2006. Saved it for a later occasion this year.

2000 Antinori Solaia Toscana IGT SuperTuscan Blend

This is a very rustic wine. Dark black look to it and blackberries, leather and hints of tobacco. Fruits seemed to be muted, but did open up more as the evening wore on. Finish was surprisingly compact but at times complex as this wine opened up. I would estimate that this wine won't get any better with more time. Drink them if you have them.
