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.

1970 Ygay and Barolo

Dinner at On Lot 10.

1970 Marqués de Murrieta Castillo Ygay Gran Reserva Especial in magnum - Mr. Dyson and I have the same birth vintage, so I brought this out for him.  Double-decanted at home, perhaps a tad early.  Acidity was high as I expected, with a little gamey, ripe and pruny nose, and a little smoke.  Later on I was surprised by the sweetness which emerged, plus some minty notes.  The wine actually lasted a little longer than I expected.

2004 Pio Cesare Barolo Ornato - lots of pine needle, forest, spices and potpourri in the nose.

Full post on dinner is here.
