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.

Wine by varietals

Drinking in the office.

2003 Kistler Pinot Noir Sonoma Coast - very sweet and ripe, alcohol very sharp on the nose, with potpourri and forest notes.  Easy to see why this wasn't popular with the others.

1997 Beringer Merlot Bancroft Ranch Private Reserve - smoky, minty with dried herbs.

1985 Hospices de Beaune Mazis-Chambertin Cuvée Madeleine-Collignon par Bouchard - farmy, soy sauce, black olives, a little smoky.  Acidity higher here.

1985 Guigal Côte-Rôtie Brune et Blonde - farmy, bacon fat, floral, violet. leather.  Absolutely beautiful, and my favorite of the evening.

2005 Kistler Chardonnay Kistler Vineyard - big, ripe nose of toasty corn.  Sweet and buttery.

2005 Vincent Girardin Puligny-Montrachet 1er Cru Les Folatieres - slightly leaner than the Kistler but still ripe.  Nice and ready to drink, with more lemon citrus.
