I have actually popped and poured that particular bottle myself and thoroughly enjoyed it. I'ts sort of fun to experience the epic tannic level of that wine in all its tongue ripping glory.
I hope thats the Paolo Bea in the decanter... For a very long time as well!
I actually had their Bin 389 Cab/Shiraz blend a couple weeks ago. They call it the "Baby Grange". It was quite good but overpriced in my opinion. You are deff paying for the "Penfolds" name a lot of the time I think. Still a good wine though and a good benchmark for a new world styled blend.
Look in the Friuli region. Movia and Livio Felluga both are producers that treat Pinot Grigio with great respect and all of their wines are multi-dimensional and full of character.The Livio Felluga's are more "classically" styled but much better than 99% of the pinot grigios out there. Very fresh, high acid and great purity of fruit. Movia's wines are a bit more experimental and complex; with extended skin contact giving them more color and often some tannin as well.
I am seeking California Chardonnay recommendations from you gentlemen. My palate tends toward a more old world style but I have plenty of White Burg in my cellar and need to add some Cali sunshine for a change of pace. Any favorites in the $20-$40 range with a strong emphasis on aging potential?

Met this house's winemaker at a shop in NYC last night. Cool guy and very good wines. They were pouring their 2010 Brunello and the 08 single vineyard Brunello along side this Rosso. All were stellar, unfortunately I could only afford the Rosso!
For $7 probably worth a try. Pinot bianco is not usually a long ager but at only 5 years should still have some stuffing I would think. Alto Adige is a good region.
Its hard to do much better in the $20-$30 range than La Rioja Alta, Vina Ardanza.
No. Crystal clear, albeit very dark garnet red. Almost black at the core.
