1986 Silver Oak Cabernet Sauvignon Alexander Valley in Magnum.  Magnificent wine!  Great way to start the year.

Finishing up a bottle of 2016 The Withers Claire’s Vineyard Mendocino County Pinot Noir.  Very good balance but won’t be mistaken for Burgundy or Oregon.  At $40, not something I would buy in large quantities.

2015 Antolini Recioto d’Valpolicella

How's that LGD holding up?  I always found that a very good wine.  The 1990 was stunning, they don't seem to be firing on all cylinders these days like they once were, however.

2016 Patz and Hall Hudson Vineyard Chardonnay—I’ve yet to have a bad Hudson vineyard chard, and this was no exception 

2011 Favia Cabernet—really nice for a less than stellar vintage. 

2015 Saxum James Berry—wonderful. Wine of the night for everyone.

Nice! Just a small question. Are you sure the Tondonia is the Gran Reserva or the reserva ? I believe the current release vintage of the gran reserva is the 1996

Yeah, if it's the 2007 it's definitely the Reserva.
