2000 Graham vintage port from a half. Closer to mature than I expected.

1998 Chateau St. Jean Cabernet Sauvignon Cinq Cépages
2016 Forge Cellars Les Ailes Riesling. Wow this is really nice. Waxy, oily, citrusy. Touch of funk on the nose. Really, really good.
1997 Lisini Brunello di Montalcino
2010 Betz Syrah La Côte Rousse. Slightly tired - good that I didn’t save it for an offline.
2007 Podere Poggio Scalette Il Carbonaione - must be one of the best QPR's. Had my price in at $40 and damn did i enjoy this.
2014 Valenti Etna Rosso Norma - needed time to pick up weight but there's better value out there. It's too bad that most of the Etna wines have had such large increases in our market over the past 5 years.
2017 Ramon de Casar Nobre Treixadura - thanks to OTW and Fut for the tip on this one - great wine.
2018 Tornatore Pietrarizzo Etna Bianco - thanks to Sunny for the tip on this one - a steal at the LCBO price. Very good etna bianco - would like to see how it gets with a bit of age.
2017 Valle dell'acate Il Frappato - off vintage for this wine. A little too cloying for a frappato.
2000 Château Faugères
2014 Domaine Pattes Loup, Chablis, Beauregard
2016 Piron, Chenas, Quartz
2008 Stefania, Cabernet Sauvignon, Harvest Moon Special Reserve
2018 Sierra Cantabria Rosado. It won’t get into the 100 point conversation.
Next of Kyn #9
16.4% abv ... surprsingly well balanced but even so, i'm feeling a little hungover
2016 San Felice Chianti Classico.
2004 Karl Lawrence Cabernet (magnum). Outstanding.
2015 Sassetti (Pertimali) Brunello
Cork pulled 4+ hours prior but not decanted. Exceptional. That’s the way I would do it right now.
2011 Domaine Huet, Vouvray, Le Mont Demi-Sec
2010 Domaine Huet, Vouvray, Le Mont, Moelleux Premiere Trie
The demi-sec was more advanced than I expected, but that was my last bottle. The Moelleux is outstanding. No rush.
2016 Columbia Crest H3 Cabernet Sauvignon. This is definitely sporting some mocha on the mid palate.
