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.

Clos Pegase and San Leonardo

Dinner at Vis-a-Vis in Singapore.

1996 Clos Pegase Merlot - drank this while waiting for the San Leonardo to be ready.  The Merlot was typically Californian.  Very forward and a big wine.  Sweet nose and palate, but firm tannins (a bit young) and lots of oak and earthy/minerals.

Listed at Vis-a-vis for SGD 78.

1991 San Leonardo - this was really closed when opened.  It was pretty undrinkable at first.  Took about an hour to open, then it was much smoother.  Nose was just like a Bordeaux, not enough fruit in the nose and palate.  It was OK as a drinking wine.  Not as good as the one we had in Tokyo.

Bought from Vinum for SGD 48.
