Still some key pop 'em moments, and tastings/restaurants not included, but roughly

2006 Casanova di Neri Brunello di Montalcino Tenuta Nuova- Always a pleasure. Wish I bought 2x what I did. This will be special for years to come.
2004 Uccelliera Brunello di Montalcino- Beginning to get the notice they deserve. Excellent producer.
2000 Château Monbousquet- Always love their wines (biased).
2012 Carlisle Zinfandel Papera Ranch- Just behind the 2014 Carlisle Zinfandel Montafi Ranch as the best Zinfandel I ever had the pleasure to taste (albeit a relatively limited exposure).
2008 Stefania Cabernet Sauvignon Crimson Clover- reminded me how much I like Paul's wines. Made me place a new order.
2004 Justin Vineyards & Winery Isosceles Reserve- biased.
2003 Château Malescot St. Exupéry- biased.
2003 Bodegas El Nido Jumilla Clio- biased, but with some age this was drinking well.
2005 Concha y Toro Cabernet Sauvignon Don Melchor
Sans Liege The Prophetess 12/13- a nod to an excellent producer. Love their wines.
