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.

Bordeaux happy hour

Drinks at Watson's Wine Cellar.

2000 Trotanoy - very smoky with cedar notes.  Nice and smooth but there is still concentration here.  Long finish.

1996 d'Armailhac - a little stinky, animal, pencil lead, smoke on the nose.  Medium to full-bodied, with a little more acidity on the finish.

1999 La Mission Haut-Brion - smoky, ripe, a little sweet, and pretty fragrant.  Amazingly there was a little bit of exotic coconut butter here.

2000 Branaire-Ducru - smoky and classic Left Bank nose.

Drinks at a friend's home.

Krug Grande Cuvée en demi-bouteille

1999 Mugnier Chambolle-Musigny 1er Cru Les Fuées - lots of dried herbs, a little exotic spices like cumin, almost minty, kinda alcoholic.  A little dusty and not enjoyable.
