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.

A pair of 1998s

Opened two bottles of 1998s in the office.

1998 Robert Craig Affinity - mint, strawberries, a bit of sweetness in the nose, hint of cotton candy, a bit of alcohol... Drinking nicely now.

1998 Rusden Shiraz Black Guts - pretty sweet nose, but not the deathly sweetness of Aussie Shiraz, with a bit more earthiness which reminds me of Rhone Syrah... suddenly a whiff of floral perfume, a bit of smoked meats, caramelized sugar... Still full-bodied but tannins are a bit softer now.
