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.

Salon and Dominus

Drinks at Megan's Kitchen.

1985 Dom Pérignon - a beautiful wine in great condition.  Caramelized and sweet, with Chinese licorice (甘草) and straw.

Dinner at Nadaman.

1996 Salon - I was pretty skeptical about drinking this tonight, since every other time I've tasted this wine before I ended up thinking the wine was too young and not ready.    The Specialist wanted to try regardless, and as it turns out the wine has mellowed a little.  Still very young and fresh, with a heady mousse and a little bit of toast.

1997 Dominus - drinking very well tonight.  Nose of pencil lead, a little grilled meats, very nice and sweet berries, a little hospital disinfectant, smoky and minty.

Full post on dinner is here.
