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.

1997 Joseph Phelps Insignia

Dinner at Kimberley Chinese Restaurant (君怡閣).

1997 Joseph Phelps Insignia from magnum - minty, smoky, sweet fruit, dried herbs, cedar and chocolate notes on the nose.  Very full-bodied, and tannins are still there.  Drinking nicely now, this would no doubt get even better.  I think I've got another magnum lying around somewhere, from the original batch I bought back in 2000.

Full post on dinner is here.
