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.

90s Californians

Dinner at Fook Lam Moon (福臨門).

1995 Silver Oak Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley in magnum - this was fairly good with classic minty and sweet fruit nose. The wine was smooth on the palate, but had enough concentration to go with the meaty dishes like the suckling pig.

1997 Chateau Montelena Estate Cabernet Sauvignon - this was a big disappointment for me.  The nose was very green and vegetal, and I was wondering if the wine was "off" or slightly corked. It revealed none of the characteristics that I was expecting from this wine.

Full post on dinner is here.
