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.

98 Mondavi I Block and 90 Gattinera

Drinks at Brown.

1998 Robert Mondavi Fumé Blanc To-Kalon Vineyard I Block - Wow!  Full-bodied, lots of toasty oak.  Very complex aromas of petrol, lemon, creamy, citrus, and later chocolate!  Very good indeed!

I Block Sauvignon Blanc vines were planted in 1945.

Bought from Robert Mondavi for USD 40.

1990 Fontanafredda Barolo Gattinera - decanted for 2 hours before drinking.  Acidity level still kinda high, but smooth tannins.  A little bit of spice on the finish.  Some fruit but probably breathed too long.
