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.

1993 Montelena and La Mission

Dinner at Blue.

1993 Montelena Estate Cabernet - full-bodied with good tannins and concentration.  Sweet on the palate.  Delicious but was drunk too quickly by everyone.

Bought from Seibu for HKD 595.

1993 La Mission Haut-Brion - this was opened and decnated about 45 minutes to 1 hour before we drank it.  A classic, finesse Bordeaux blend.  Nose of minerals, moss and earth.  Not much fruit in comparison to the Montelena.

Bought from Eslite for TWD 2,640.
