1993
1994
1996
1997

Good thread. Unfortunetly my impatience has damaged my verticles the last few years.

Best I got going now, barely:

Mondavi Reserve: 94, 96, 97, 99, 2001

Banfi Brunello: 95, 97, 98, 99


Nothing more than 3 after that.

My bench is not too deep lately.

I just checked my log, and I was suyprised to see that for me, the "longest vertical" I have is Yalumba "The Signature." For me it is

1996
1997
1998
1999

Not too sexy, but a very good wine.

Van Der Hayden Cabernet - 1987, 1992, 1994, 1995, [1996 wasn't made], 1997, 1998, 1999, 2000.
Plus the 1999 Cornerstone and Hillside limited releases.

Also I managed to pick up the incredibly rare 1990 Late Harvest Cabernet last year, so now I have every year the wine has been released so far - 1990, 1994, 1996, 1997 and 2000.

My longest unbroken run is Penfolds Bin 28 96-01.
I also have Bin 128 97-00 and Bin 389 98-01

Not much to report, but I have Elderton shiraz and
Clancy's Red 1998-2001, and Dead Arm the same except for 99.

I have 77, 83, 85, 91, 2000 Graham's; 77, 83, 87 (Malvedos), 88 (Malvedos) 94, 97, 2000 Dow and 77, 83, 85, 94, 97, 2000 Warre's vintage ports, does that count?

Not to jinx it of course, but...
