2007 Fontodi Chianti Classico Riserva. It is excellent. No notes beyond that. Just, an excellent chianti.

'06 Robert Mondavi Cabernet Sauvignon, with Beef Wellington and lobster tails. Decided to treat ourselves at our favorite restaurant. Everything was wonderful, the food, the wine, the service, a great holiday treat.

How was the Isosceles? I think the only time I have tried that it was a small pour after I was already overserved

How long did you decant and how was it? I have 2 sets of his 06 cabs and don't want to commit infanticide.

Underwhelmed. I used to love it 02-05. 06 was a tougher year and it may have been too young. Nice, but I was hoping for more.

Thanks Neil. Love this guys wine. So much so that I buy it when he isn't on Woot. His nebbiolo is still the best though.

2000 Seghesio Barolo. The bottle looked nice. The wine was nicer after the alcohol burned off after some decanting.

Auto parts all day. Started with it at lunch out of the bottle. Put it in the decanter and went back to it at dinner (8 hours later)

'08 Iron Horse Winter's Cuvée with some shrimp before dinner. Maybe the best IH ever. Then '08 Roessler Shea Vineyard (Willamette Valley) Pinot Noir with roast duck l'Orange, roasted potatoes and Brussels sprouts. Perfect dinner, perfect Christmas, perfect wife, life is good. Best to all our woot friends, who make life even better.
