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.

Dinner with 3 Froggies

Dinner at San San Trois.

1999 Kaesler Old Bastard - made from 110-year old Shiraz vines. Kaesler is an Australian winery whose main shareholder is Ed Peters, the head of Deutsche's Asian asset management arm and former head of Asian equities. As a result I've always wanted to try this wine. It was unfortunately a little disappointing. It was neither a classic, powerful Aussie Shiraz nor a Syrah in the Rhone style. Somehow it just didn't open up well.

2001 Kistler Pinot Noir Kistler Vineyard - the wine performed reasonably well, with nose full of black cherries. However it was not as powerful as I imagined it would be. Perhaps the wine needs more time to age.

Full post on dinner is here.
