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.

Cesare Barolo and Kongsgaard VioRus

Dinner at Hong Zhou Restaurant (杭州酒家).

2007 Kongsgaard VioRus - I dug this out from my cellar and figured it was due to be drunk.  Sure enough, it had started to oxidize a little... Very ripe, perhaps a little over.  Floral, mineral and lemon notes.  The stated alcohol level of 14.1% was very, very obvious.

2005 Pio Cesare Barolo - very lovely and quite a surprise.  Very sweet on the nose, with plenty of vanilla, mint, pine needle and definitely oak.

Full post on dinner is here.
