Beauty of a bottle. Light purple color, like a pinot noir. Great fruit, mild tannins, wonderful finish. Likely at peak.

Bordeaux biend from NY's Finger Lakes region. This is among the best Finger Lakes reds that I've tasted.

Accessible Cab with plenty of fruit. Would like to see a little more structure and complexity, but one should not ncessarily expect that from Napa at this price point.

Great juice -- nice balance of fruit, tart, and tannin.

Solid effort -- the last of my six. Wish I'd hung onto this longer. Beautifully balanced wine. Well worth the wait.

Big and burly. Still carrying loads of tannins after 12 years. Definitely distinctive, not a wine that should be taken lightly.

100% Marsanne grapes from three plots in the northern Rhone. Color of straw, faint in nose and on palate. Sadly, not a memorable wine for me; as a Rhone fan, I was hoping for more.

Light-bodied pinot noir loaded with cherry on the nose and palate. Both WS and RP say the 2012 Oregon vintage is ready to drink.

Lots of fruit here, my number one impression is a tartness. This has life in it, might be better in a year or two

This might be just a tad past peak, but still in its drinking window. Smooth, mild tannins, moderate black fruits. For 2010 Napa, RP says hold, WS says drink or hold. This is Knights Valley, which is just north of Napa.

2010, 2012, and 2013 are all considered exceptional vantages for Brunello.

A super super Tuscan. Smoke, tobacco and dark fruit on the palate. Long finish. Can't go wrong with this wine...

Classic Rhône nose. Tannic upon opening but quickly softened as it opened.

Well-balanced wine that's drinking perfectly right now. Slight barnyard and bandaids on the nose. Soft tannins. Well done. 60% cab, 40% merlot.

True to form, the nose on this is all violets and flowers. Loved it. Acidic on the palate, full and robust. Not seeing the 96 point WS rating, but I don't have as much experience with Condrieu as others do.

The older i get the less i like the big in-your-face wines and the more i like wines like this grenache-syrah blend from Gigondas -- subtle fruits balanced with spice and lavender and licorice. Gigondas doesn't get nearly the attention that Chateauneuf du Pape gets, but is producing some incredible wines at good prices.

Very nice, soft tones, easily identified as primarily merlot. Located in the Lalande de Pomerol appellation on the Right Bank, this chateau is owned by the same family that owns Angelus. Great value at $22 a bottle.

This has the stuffing to last a while, but is drinking great. Long and powerful finish. Needs a bit of air to open up. Worth seeking out.

Drinking beautifully tonight. Silky smooth and integrated. Lots of fruit -- blueberry especially -- and hints of tar and tobacco on the nose. One more bottle remaining.

This was nice, but for me did not live up to the 94 WS rating. We opened it alongside the standard Seghesio Zin from the same vintage, and we all thought the regular cuvee bested it.

This was fantastic. First bottle of the night. At 7 years old, perfectly integrated. This bested a Seghesio old vine zin from the same vintage.

This is still young, in my opinion. Needs more integration. Lots of potential, though, just wish i'd had more patience.

Decent entry level Bordeaux from Haut Medoc. Got this at a wine pull, so no idea of its cost. Enjoyable.

This was beautifully balanced. Nose of black olives and spice; no tannins to speak of on the palate. The weakness was in the finish, in my opinion. It felt flat to me. Could it be just exiting its dumb phase and entering its drinking window?

This Banyuls from Chapoutier was a crowd-pleaser after Thanksgiving dinner. Port-like, with more purple to the eye and more fruit on the palate. Having said that, i must admit that dessert wines are not my specialty, although I've had some vintage Ports, including a 1977 Dow, that were amazing.

Tar on the nose, balanced attack. Some astringent notes on the finish. Blend of Sangiovese, Cab and Merlot. All in all, a great value at $12.

Lots of fruit, but not a fruit bomb. An easy drinker from Castilla y Leon. Spain is king of value -- you can find this bottle for less than $10.

If you're looking for some of the best pinot noir produced in the U.S., this has to be among the candidates. Great nose of cherry, perfect balance of fruit and velvet on the palate, and a long finish that makes you eager for the next sip.

Great bottle of wine for $10. Made from 100% Negroamaro grapes from southern Italy -- the heel of the boot, to be precise. Subtle and nuanced, with fruit, acidity and mild tannins. When you find a bottle like this for $10, it make you question the need to purchase wines at 5 and 10 times the price.

Rich and powerful nose on this. Would have liked to see a little more backbone on the palate. This is a Finger Lakes producer worth seeking out.
