Secret Santa did me right with an assortment of red wines. Grace & I finished off a bottle of Casas Patronales Carmenere, a really nice Chilean offering which seems to fall between a merlot & a cab.

It was delicious!

Had a 1982 Duckhorn Cab last night; the oldest Duckhorn I have tried (I think). Held up really well. Took about 3 hours to open up. Classic style CA cab.

If I did not have to host pictures on this forum; I'd share more of the bottles I open...

Other forums I frequent, pictures can be hosted within the forum itself; much easier for me.

Enjoying some 2010 Bodegas Breca Garnacha. Great bottle tonight, loads of cherry, jolly rancher type strawberry, some coffee/chocolate flavors as well. Chewy and dark/ripe. New world style with that candy sweetness, but the finish is fresh and rounds out the wine. Thinking of getting a case.

This thread needs pictures!

Was looking through pictures I have on photobucket, but I can't find any recent wine pictures. Stumbled on this one from this summer at a local restaurant. Not a bad line up for a mid-week dinner!

Here's one more a Port night over the summer. Haven't been drinking as much port as I use to.

1904 Cockburn and 1957 Fonseca. Both were really great ports from not so big vintages. We used tongs on the 1908 Cockburn to preserve the cork. Can't remember if the that cork was branded, but I think it was.

Here's a nice picture of a port night I had in Scottsdale a few weeks ago. We smoked Sancho Sancho's and something else too... I think it was an '01 Punch RS that was out of this world...

Back to the wine.

1985 Niepoort - great wine, but not one of the best of that vintage
1985 Fonseca - one of the greatest vintage ports since 1970
1963 Graham's - classic vintage that is drinking pretty darn nice right now, '63 is a solid vintage in general

I've been enjoying Terra d'Oro Zinfandel Port (http://terradorowinery.com/zinfandel-port.php). It pairs wonderfully with a cigar!

The very first port I've had was a Fonseca '85. It was amazing! I've never had a finer port since.
