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.

Graff and Ygay

Dinner at Fook Lam Moon in Hong Kong.

2009 Delaire Graff Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve - very young and tannic.  Nose of dried herbs and black fruits.  Infanticide.

1970 Castillo Ygay Gran Reserva Especial from magnum - opened an hour before dinner and decanted for 30 mins before serving.  Nose was already open and fragrant, minty, sweet, a little savory, a little wood.  Slightly acidic on palate, as expected.  Not much tannin left.

2007 Leeuwin Estate Chardonnay Art Series - ripe on the nose, with plenty of toasty oak.  Buttery.
