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.

1996 Syrah vs Shiraz

Dinner at Cine Citta.

1996 Kay Brothers Amery Shiraz Block 6 - I guessed it was a Californian Syrah, since it had the leather and game meat nose of Syrah but nose was too sweet to be Rhône.  Thought it was overpriced although it was a very good wine.

1996 Tardieu-Laurent Côte-Rôtie - nose was so typical Côte-Rôtie, especially like Guigal.  Amazingly perfumed nose of lavender, rose, stewed prunes, bacon fat, leather.  Wonderful stuff.  A bit light in body compared to the Block 6.
