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.

An evening of whites

Drinks at California Vintage.

2009 Langetwins Viognier - ripe and sweet, with peach and tropical fruits.

2007 Chentella Viognier - mineral, flint and ripe fruit.  Hot on the palate with higher acidity.

2009 Francis Coppola Sofia Blanc de Blancs - sweet like bubblegum, a little funky with a hint of peach.  Ordered it because it is named after one of my favorite directors, Sofia Coppola.

2008 Treana White - a blend of Marsanne and Viognier.  Very ripe and sweet, oxidized with straw and honey.

Dinner at Yan Toh Heen (欣圖軒).

2003 Penfolds Yattarna - I was blown away the first time I drank a bottle of this Chardonnay.  Tonight the wine wasn't as explosive, but still drank incredibly well.  Nose of buttery corn, toast, and very sweet.  Ripe on the palate with good acidity balance.  A very lovely and elegant wine.

1995 Joh. Jos. Prüm Wehlener Sonnenuhr Riesling Auslese - very big nose of plastic, petrol, white flowers and a little orange marmalade.  Nice and sweet on the palate.

Full post on dinner is here.
