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.

Huadiao and more

Dinner at Tasting Court.

2006 Agrapart Minéral - ripe on the palate but acidity was on the high side thanks to the low dosage.  Nice depth of flavor here.

2008 DuMOL Chardonnay Chloe - very ripe on the nose, very sweet with vanilla oak.  Really ripe on the palate, too.

Huadiao, more than 20 years old - lots of salty plum (話梅), very smooth.  Dry on the attack with a sweet finish.

2006 Albino Rocca Barbaresco Vigneto Brich Ronchi - nose of exotic spices, forest pine, leather, and grilled meats.  Starting to be a little like mulled wine.

2005 Feather Cabernet Sauvignon - very smoky, ripe and fruity.  Still kinda tannic.

2000 Barnett Cabernet Sauvignon Rattlesnake Hill - ripe fruit, minty, and cedar notes.  Still tannins here, but acidity was higher than expected.

1970 Dujac Marc de Bourgogne - for the birthday boy.

Full post on dinner is here.
