Clos Du Val CS 1996
Travaglini Gattinara
Beringer Knights Valley CS 1996
Chateau Margaux 1994

I got into wine in the mid 90s, these were among the 1st quality wines I
had and they left a lasting impression on me, especially the Bordeaux,
which I still recall smelled like a basket of flowers when I put the
glass to my nose.
