For Mrs. VeV's bday celevbrations over the weekend:

NV Bernard Gaucher Prestige Brut (2008 base) - these keep getting better with time.  High pinot % shines through with a good dose of autolytic notes as well.

1999 Ridge Pagani Ranch - Swoon. The whole kitchen filled with the scent of the wine when the cork came out.  So complex and balanced.

2006 Ben Glaetzer Amon-Ra - Monstrous blueberry pie in a glass.   Mrs. VeV loved it, I stuck to the Ridge.

2005 Carlisle Two Acres - in the same vein as the Ridge, but more mouvedre influence.  Seemed elegant and restrained after the Amon-Ra.  These Two Acres might be my favourite Carlisle bottling for thier uniqueness.

Fladgate 40 YO Tawny - brought by a friend.  Gorgeous stuff after dinner on the deck.
