This is still a work in progress as I upload tasting notes and wine labels from as far as 1999... Check back once in a while to get the updates.

Dinner at Blue

Dinner at Blue.

1993 Clos du Val Cabernet Sauvignon - it was surprisingly diluted and lacking in fruit.  Smooth but not as much depth to it.  Was better once it was given time to breathe, but still disappointing for a Clos du Val.

1986 Lynch-Bages - there was some question as to whether this was fake.  Decanted and left to breathe for at least half an hour.  It was surprisingly diluted and lacking in fruit.  Did not have the same taste on the palate as the one we tasted in May.  There was some sediment but not quite enough for such a vintage.  While this may not be a fake bottle, it may be improperly stored.  Not worth the HKD 800 I paid.
