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.

MNSC Face-off

1985 Solaia - smoky, savory, very ripe nose, a bit cooked and minty. Smooth on the palate but I could definitely feel the tannins. Color was very dark. 94 points.
1985 Joseph Phelps Insignia - this was very funky from the start, with herbs, exotic spices, smoke, black olives and green peppers in the nose. Pretty tannic. 95 points.

1978 Bouchard Montrachet - very toasty and smoky, like smoked lardon/pancetta, with notes of rye bread. Kinda acidic on the finish.

Full post on the face-off is here.
