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.

Die-Nasty and more

Dinner at Dynasty.

Hanzo Plum Liquor (半蔵の梅酒) - not bad, actually...

2002 Comte Lafon Meursault Clos de la Barre - Anjou pear, mineral, a bit flinty, a little sweet on the nose, a hint of straw.  Two hours later the nose was much more open, with a little almond/marzipan even...

2007 Chateau Ste Michelle Muscat Canelli - initially a little menthol?  Lots of tropical mango, a hint of flint and a tiny bit of effervescence.  Very sweet on the palate.

2007 Chapoutier La Croix des Grives - minty, pine needle and leather.  Pretty concentrated and I definitely felt the alcohol.

2009 Chateau Dynasty Merlot Red Label - smoke, pine needle, a bit sweet... not very complex.  Nose was still a little sharp after double-decanting for 3 hours.

Full post on dinner is here.
