Sean Thackrey "Pleiades XXI" Old Vine Red Blend (out of stock)  
Review Date: 11-6-2011
Pale ruby in the glass. All kinds of fruit action teeming from the glass. There is red cherry, blueberry, & sweet red fruit pie. Similar notes on the attack. Much lighter & lacking the eucalyptus note compared to a previous version I tried.

2008 Storybook Mountain "Mayacamas Range" Napa Valley Zinfandel (out of stock)  
Review Date: 11-6-2011
Dark ruby in the glass. Definitely a lighter zin compared to other Napa Zins I've had recently. There are cherries, plums & spice coming from the glass. Fruit turns brambly when you taste it with minerals & spice. There are plenty of acids leaving me to believe this should make an excellent BBQ kabob wine.

2008 Bisceglia Aglianico del Vulture Terra di Vulcano (out of stock)  
Review Date: 11-5-2011
Saturated ruby-purple in the glass. Very dark plums, asphalt & minerals on the nose. The attack on this wine is much lighter in fruit. You get cherries, light but noticeable tannin & acids show. Pretty interesting wine from the side of a volcano in Southern Italy.

2005 l'Avocat Rouge, Graves (out of stock)  
Review Date: 10-31-2011
Saturated ruby in the glass. Menthol, herbs, black currant & oak waft from the glass. Astringent tannin & acids are still evident. Some of the oak & currant follow. This will need some air time to resolve. Should be better after trick or treating!

2005 La Gerla Brunello di Montalcino (out of stock)  
Review Date: 10-29-2011
Saturated ruby purple in the glass. Lots of plum, leather, spices & earthy funk on the nose. Some tar & cherries, leather & tobacco spice notes come through. A delicious glass of Brunello!

1997 Terrey Gros Cailloux, St-Julien (out of stock)  
Review Date: 10-15-2011
Saturated ruby with a slight fade at the rim. Cranberry, cherry, earth & minerals burst from the nose. Much of the same on the attack with that austerity that is telltale Bordeaux. Tannins & acids are still evident though fairly well integrated. I'm looking forward to polishing off this bottle tonight!
