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.

Wines for New Year's Day

Dinner at a friend's home.

2010 Anne Gros et Jean-Paul Tollot Minervois Les Carrétals - minty, peppery, potpourri, a little smoky.  Not too tannic but still pretty young, obviously.

2009 Torbreck Juveniles - very ripe and sweet, with leather and animal notes. Very sweet on the palate with noticeable tannins.  Not as classic Rhône as this wine was a decade ago.

2007 Merricks Estate Pinot Noir - sweet nose with cherries.

1995 Guigal Côte-Rôtie Brune et Blonde - nose of grilled meats, animal, a little stinky, but there's definitely the fragrance from the Viognier.
