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.

Red, white and pink

Dinner at a friend's house

2000 Philipponnat Rosé Cuvée "1522" - pretty disappointing.  Nose was virtually non-existent, with just some red fruits on the palate.

2009 Donnafugata Vigna di Gabri - very ripe and alcoholic.  Pretty nice and aromatic, with metallic notes and lots of toast and minerals.

1989 Lafite-Rothschild - decanted for 2½ hours prior to drinking.  Mineral, salty, soy sauce, smoky.  Very open and beautiful.  Opened up more with time, showing lovely black fruits and eventually lead pencil.

Full post on dinner is here.
