  • 07 Draconis French Oak Zinfandel (Lodi): Helping heapings of prune, spice, focused dark fruit and thorough deliciousness. $25 B+ #
  • 08 St. Urbans-Hof Riesling (Mosel): Lime & acid to go the distance (prob. several yrs) but might not be too complex when it gets there $16 B #
  • 00 Domaine du Vieux Telegraphe “La Crau” (Chateauneuf du Pape): Has plenty of spunk left; vibrant, lively & packed with red fruit. $53 A- #
  • 07 Quevedo Vintage Port (Porto): As you’d expect, tight as a drum. As you might not expect, showing off all the spices in the rack. $52 A- #
  • 08 Quinta Nova “Pomares” Red (Douro): Peppery, dark, smooth & about as one-dimensional as a physics equation involving a quantum wire €6 C+ #
  • 08 Quinta Nova REFerencia Grande Reserva (Douro): True red field blend that exudes class, focused brooding dark fruit, & demands meat €43 A- #
