  • 1996 Opus One

    Strong tobacco on the nose. Strong (unique) bell pepper taste, blue forrest berries and red fruit on the pallate. I had it blindly and thought it was a Bordeaux. Great balance, very well integrated. Weightless in structure, nice acidity. The epitome of what I like about aged Bordeaux. Didn't change too much over the course of the evening.

    This bottle was very well drinkable without decanting.

  • 1989 Giuseppe E Figlio Mascarello Barolo Monprivato

    Stunning wine that keeps constantly changing. Just the way I like it! Licorice as well as red fruit and roses on the nose. Both red and blue fruit on the palate as well as tar and various herbs. Tanins changed strongly over time, from very light to a silky&velvety texture. The wine is super well balanced, presenting it's ever changing aromas perfectly. The finish is exquisite, with an almost salty aroma.

    We didn't decant the wine, planning on drinking the second half tomorrow night.

    I had the first few sips blindly and managed to guess the grape thanks to the typical roses on the nose and the color.

    Edit: 2nd night
    This wine has an amazing, unique finish, which comes out even better now. It's salty and sweet like a molten strawberry at the same time. Strong alpine herbs at times. Still very good, but not as variable as on night one!

  • 2003 Turley Petite Syrah Hayne Vineyard

    Extremely dark soul, very unique. Dark blackberry, some herbs, but distinctly different from a cab. Nice tertiary aromas. Leather, olives. It's a big wine, deep and long. I liked the 2008 better when I had it in 2018, because it was such a unique experience at Zion National Park. But this is also great.
