Like everyone else, a tough thing to define. Some of my highlights would have to be:

Rocholi Pinot Noir-tasted ten years ago or more, so I cannot remember the vintage or vineyard designate. Still, the first "premium wine" I'd ever had-delicious, peppery, structured Russian River Pinot Noir.

Some more recent and less famous ones that really, really blew me away and would have to rank up there.:

1999 Cafaro Reserve Caberne Sauvignon-what an awesome, balanced earthy Napa Cab. Delicious.

2000 Niebaum Coppola "Rubicon" Meritage Delicious, earthy red blend that was almost worth the price :lol:

Podere Il Palazziono Grosso Sanese Chianti Classico Riserva. Amazing dark, earthy, complex chianti. Delicious even if not considered typical.
