1996 La Grande Dame

2007 LdH Gran Reserva Tondonia

2015 Antolini Recioto d’Valpolicella

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.

My mistake. You are correct it was the Reserva. 

Last night with the BMan's, Mimik and my better half at Lannes et Pacifique.

2008 H. Blin, Champagne, Millisime

2016 CVNE, Rioja, Monopole Blanco

2005 Domaine de la Janasse, CdP, Chaupin

2011 Peter Michael, Les Pavots

2008 Sadie Family, Columella

2005 Chateau Pavie Macquin, St. Emilion

Everything showed well. Hard to pick a WOTN, but it might have been the Pavie Macquin which surprised me after a really poor showing of this wine in August with some of the Chicago group. This bottle was excellent, which gives me hope for my last bottle. The Pavots was outstanding also. My least favourite red was the Chaupin.

First time for us at this BYOW resto. Food was very good. The place would be noisy on a busy night which it wasn't luckily for us. Will go back.

Thanks for posting the wines, Steve.  My favourites were the Les Pavots and the Chaupin, least favourite the Columella.  mrs bman liked the Les Pavots best too, the Chaupin not so much.  To each their own!

Great night with great wines. It was great to see Bman and Mrs Bman and Steve8 and J. Loved the  food and like the resto if not a little loud. 

All wines showed well but the Chaupin cdp Janasse and the Pavie Macquin were my favourites. The pavots showed structure but I felt a bit disjointed since it was too young but I’m very honoured and grateful bman brought the bottle.

see you next time very soon 

Australian shiraz is out of style, so I've been ignoring it in my cellar for the last few years.  Last night I opened my last bottle of 2001 Craneford Barossa Shiraz.  Despite Cellartracker's advice that the drinking window had expired in 2007, it was really quite good.  Deep ruby colour with no bricking.  Deep dark fruit flavours with a bit of leather and no perceived tannin but still well-structured.

So tonight I opened up a 1998 Clarendon Hills Piggott Range Shiraz.  Again, there is no visible sign of aging other than substantial sediment.  But the wine has a lovely spiciness with a Rhone-style flavour profile.  According to CT, it's drinking window expired in 2016.
