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.

1994 Gaja Barbaresco

Drinking at home.

1994 Gaja Barbaresco - wow! This is another great showing for Gaja. Opens up very nicely after 2 hours. Nose was explosively sweet at first, with gobs of sweet cassis, game meat, leather, toasted oak, even a bit of glycerin. Kept improving and eventually softened. Acidity is very high, a bit distracting. Tannins also are still very strong. Really needs time to age.

Gift from a friend.
