Looks like a good lineup. Hope your palate is up to it.

Of the list, I've had the Argyle, Mondavi, and the Beaucastel. All were very good, as I recall, but it has been several years since I drank them. I think I'd put the Beaucastel sooner in the lineup, before you get to the Cali cabs.

Royal Tokay Company?

Or do you mean Royal Tokaji Company?

I'm not sure about the Barolo. Don't know where I'd put it, but I think I'd put the older wines last. That way people will get through the big ones, they won't be paying attention, and they may not be interested towards the end, leaving more for me!


I concur with mneeley. Looks awesome and also on the Beaucastel.  I’d probably put it before the Cabs. (To be fair, both the Beaucastel and the Voerzio are possible — or even likely — to be bigger than the Mondavi, but I imagine you want to keep the Cabs together. I would want to keep the Cabs together.)  Also, while I’ve never had a Detert, I’ve heard enough tell of that Cab Franc that I would suspect it best to put it at the end of the Cab flight. Have fun!  I’m sure it will be great in whatever order you wind up choosing.
