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.

2000 Roty and 1981 Torres

Dinner at Nino's Cozinha.

2000 Joseph Roty Mazy-Chambertin - very fruity with lots of berries, a little oxidized on the edges. Kinda alcoholic and burns a little. Later on with more aeration, more animal, leather and a little mineral. A very lovely wine.

1981 Torres Gran Coronas Reserva Mas La Plana - I took this out of the fridge because I thought it'd be interesting to drink something that is 30 years old. This Cab drank very well. A little smoky, with prunes, potpourri, meaty and fragrant. Acidity is slightly higher than expected, but there was still very good concentration on the palate.

Full post on dinner is here.
