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 '90s

Dinner at Brasserie on the Eighth.

1990 Henschke Cyril Henschke - noticeably sweeter on the palate, also fuller-bodied and firmer tannins despite the age.  My preferred wine of the night.

1990 Vieux Château Certan - a little disappointing.  It was very smoky at the beginning.  This dissipated but there just wasn't enough fruit.  It was classic, understated Bordeaux.  Improved a bit after 2-2½ hours, but so typical of many Bordeaux - not interesting enough.
