2005 Anglim Roussanne- Second time around -WOW! Awesome! Like licking a wet stone bathed in subtle fruit.
Columbia Crest 2004 Chardonnay - The newest vintage is just as excellent as the 2003. This has to be the world's best value in Chardonnay and fortunately you can just run down to your local convenience store to pick up a bottle
1983 Chateau Margaux - Unfortunately, you can't run down to the convenience store for this one. This older Bordeaux was deep brick red with no brown edges. She will last a long time. Surprisingly little bouquet, just a hint of minerals. In the mouth, she is soft, velvety, medium bodied with good black fruit flavors and a hint of acid and tannin. Delicious, but linear and surprisingly monochromatic. One might have expected a little more complexity, but who's to complain?
Three Rivers Red - This wine did the trick in a restaurant, but was probably no better than the Montepulciano on the wine list for much less.
