About halfway through a 1990 Troplong Mondot.
Stunning bottle of wine thus far.

How was the 1999 Kalin Cellars Semillon?
Terrific lineup last night. My WOTN would be the 2003 Dönnhoff Niederhäuser Hermannshöhle Riesling Auslese Goldkapsel- perfect balance of fruit, petrol and acidity, and it paired very well with Lady VM's dishes. The Launois was excellent though; glad we tried it, now I need to grab some more and sit on them for a while. The Kalin was indeed tight and really didn't begin to open until Domino and I were we'll into clean up & dish washing...three bottles left, and I will try to wait a couple of years before opening another. Thanks all for another terrific evening.
Wine is passion. It is family and friends, warmth of heart, and generosity of spirit.

steve8 - The restaurant was excellent. Yet another to be added to the list (Good find, vinaigre). Food very good. Most of the guys had the Cheval for the main and it was very, very nicely prepared.
The '08 Achaval-Ferrer was very elegant.
The '01 Pio Cesare barolo showed very well. To be honest, I was just enjoying the evening and not critiquing the wines much. I don't recall the '05 Mellchor (it may not have made its' way to the complete end of the table I was at. I also don't recall the la Nerthe getting down to us, either, but I didn't give it a second thought. Nothing was stressed over. The Taylor was NOT corked this time. It was all good.
You are correct that the Alion needed the most time. The Condrieu was textbook. Beautiful.
FYI: I took the wines from the 'Declared' list to work from as I couldn't count on you

I have thought that the 2005 Clos Apalta is one of the best expressions of that cuvee that I have tried, and truly worthy to hang in prestigious company. Any thoughts?
An excellent showing of this young wine, Redhawk. I do believe that this is my first experience with Clos Apalta so I've nothing to compare it to. But very nice indeed.
This was a really delicious wine. Very elegant, rich and powerful. I decanted for 2 hours and it was hitting on all cylinders.
