1969 DRC Ezchezeaux with g-man and sarbuze.

Would love to hear the tasting note on this.

Not much to write about.  It was like drinking flat cola.  It looked like it too.  I was disappointed.  I thought it would have a bit more fruit and acidity.  Provenance was unknown (“gentleman collector from the northeast” as the auction house likes to say in its catalog).  No signs of past seepage.  The label was in bad shape.   Cork came out in one piece - thanks to g-man.  In short,  save your money and buy Bordeaux instead if you want a really old bottle.

Recently, that I can recall

2016 Stags' Leap Winery, Petit Sirah (still looking for that 'wow" I got from the 1994 way back when)

2018 JC Wickens, Chenin Blanc, Swerwer

2007 Ruffino, Modus (corked)

2007 Petrolo, IGT, Torrione

2014 Louis Michel, Chablis, Butteaux

I also had a glass of a red from an Umbrian producer I'd never heard of before. Paolo Bea.  I since checked their website and I'm not sure which wine it was but it was a 2013 sangiovese/sagrantino blend and it was outstanding. I need to keep my eyes open for some of these wines.

Steve8, Paolo Bea is a BUY. 
Prices have shot up and availability is scarce but they’re unique and very tasty.  

Paolo Bea Sagrantino Pagliaro is one of my two favorite “affordable” red wines in the world. (The other, also imported by Neal Rosenthal, is Bernard Levet La Chavaroche.). Young examples need about 3 hours in a decanter to show their stuff — they change from burly brutes to red versions of Rhone Roussanne.
