Fortunate to have a group of extremely generous winos here in Toronto, but a few that stand out over the past year:
1978 Ridge Monte Bello - suspect I won't ever be fortunate to taste this again, but likely in my top 5 ever
1989 Beaucastel rouge - last bottle, so sad
1987 Mondavi Reserve - several more of these and they are still improving IMO
1987 Dunn Howell Mountain - wish these were still available at the price of even a few years ago
1996 Calon Segur - my fave from Bordeaux
2006 Beaucastel Roussanne Vielles Vignes - atypical as it never shut down, but truly exceptional every time I've had it.
