1993 Fisher, Cabernet Sauvignon Lamb Vineyard:
Decanted off moderate sediment, 13% alcohol; youthful appearance, solid ruby to the rim; muted nose of earth and dark plum; very good in the mouth with plum and dark chocolate flavors, a worsted texture, good grip, depth and intensity, well-balanced and slightly juicy; long, finish with some extremely fine, sweet tannins. The nose is unremarkable but the flavors are delicious; this has lots of time left. About $55, on release.
2001 Arcadian, Pinot Noir Pisoni Vnyd. (from 9L):
Earthy nose with underbrush, stone and light pinot fruit; much the same on the palate but amped up three-fold in intensity; medium finish. A very Burgundian wine that is still a bit tight. Price unknown.
1985 Chateau Montelena, Cabernet Sauvignon (from 6L):
At its prime with very pure fruit, superb depth, nuance and balance and a very long, perfectly balanced finish. Utterly harmonious and a joy to drink. Price unknown.
1998 Silver Oak, Caberent Sauvignon Napa Valley (from 6L):
Oaked beyond recognition; DNPIM. Price unknown.
1993 Paul Roger, Champagne:
Subtle, mellow and at its very best. Price unknown.
2000 Grand Puy-Lacoste:
Young but earthy and complex; beautifully textured. Paulliac through and through. Price unknown.
2004 de Villaine, Bourgogne La Fortune:
Lightweight, fresh, supple and juicy; a little short on the finish but one would have trouble finding a nicer pinot for the $20 this cost.
