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.

97 Tignanello + South African pinot

Dinner at a friend's house.

1997 Antinori Tignanello - nose was fairly muted, with notes of mint and black fruits.  Nice concentration and lovely on the palate.  Slightly disappointed as I thought this would show much more.

2010 Hamilton Russell Pinot Noir Hemel-en-Aarde Valley - chocolate, leather and forest notes.  Not much complexity here, but not bad at all.

Full post on dinner is here.
