I brought a 2007 Chasseur Pinot Noir Rayhill Russian River Valley.
Yes, great time and some pretty good wines opened as well. This is what I remember being opened last night.

2002 Maison Leroy Meursault: In a great spot with ample fruit and nice acidity to balance.
2006 Peter Michael (vineyard ?) This bottle had a slight hint of cork taint.
1986 Maison Leroy Volnay Santenots: Drinking at peak now; in fact, not going to get better. But, fantastic now.
2007 Chasseur Pinot Noir Rayhill Vineyard: Nice drinking this along the Leroy. Both wines good examples of their respective regions. This bottle got better with air. I would hold if I had any.
1997 Pertimali Brunello di Montalcino: This wine was decanted 1 1/2 hours and was still a baby. Great wine and my WOTN even though it showed so young. Wouldn't open unless given 3+ hours in decanter or 5 more years in bottle.
2002 Spottswoode Cabernet Sauvignon: Another well made wine and another wine needing more time.
