I'd like that too!  Though I've lost my taste for Dead Arm it seems. Last few bottles have done nothing for me. And I've got lots of the stuff, back to 1998 as well.

Ummm, I'm still interested in helping you with that problem, especially with those pesky 2001's.

As for Open That Bottle Night, we opened a 2005 Renato Ratti Rocche Barolo which was outstanding. I'll try to post a TN later.

the double 63 was a pleasant surprise, G-Man and I did some damage that night. The 78 Bersano Barolo would have benefited from a little more breathing time. I was afraid it was going to die shortly after opening (miscalculation on my part) as it showed better once most of the funk blew off an our or so after being poured into my glass).

Between the champagne, the 3 or 4 reds (had a wild oak merlot about 15 years old) 2 ports the awesome beer was very happy wife was desiginated driver.



As for B-man I dont come around to often anymore but this porthead still drinks somewhere around 40-50 bottles of port a year.  Had to cut myself off from purchasing  newer releases as did not think i would have enough time to drink existing stock/be around to see current releases reach full maturity.

Who am I kidding my wife is waiting for me to reach maturity,

Happy to see there's at least one more portlover here.

Still missing tsunami, Ronnie and Lady Roots, KillerB and Stevie Cage, amongst others....

I'm waiting to hear how the OP's bottle of weightless complexity was?

Cheeky bugger. 

We love old wines, but sadly the '96 Gaunoux was too old even for our palates.  Not corked or madeirized, just way over the hill.  So we settled on 2010 Domaine de la Vougeraie Gevrey-Chambertin, which was outstanding.  And yes, it had layered complexity in spades while still staying light on its feet.  So there.
