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.

Araujo Sauvignon Blanc + Grace Chairman's Reserve

Dinner at Whisk.

2009 Araujo Sauvignon Blanc Eisele Vineyard - nose of lemon, pipi de chat, flint and toast.  Classic Sauvignon Blanc from a top winery at a reasonable price.

2005 Grace Vineyard Chairman's Reserve - lots of ripe fruit, sweet, jammy, a bit of forest, green peppers, and later on piment d'espelette.  While the nose was not bad, the palate was pretty weak and diluted.  While this wine was not cheap and drank better than my last bottle of Chinese wine, my experience based on these two bottles leads me to conclude that I shouldn't waste any more money on them.

Full post on dinner is here.
