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.

95 Gaja and more

Dinner at Seventh Son.

2013 Kusuda Riesling - a little petrol and polyurethane on the nose, fairly light.  Rather dry and lean on the palate.

2009 Dame de Montrose - decanted for about 30 minutes.  A little smoky, with some fruit.  Still a little tight on the palate.  Some tannins here but not too heavy.  Later on more smoke showed up in the nose, and the tannins were smoother and silkier.

Daishichi Myoukarangyoku Junmai Daiginjo Shizuku Genshu (大七 妙花蘭曲 純米大吟醸 雫原酒), 24BY - very rich rice aromas on the nose, with lots of banana.  Kinda sweet on the palate as long as it's served cold.

1995 Gaja Barbaresco Sori San Lorenzo - decanted for about 45 minutes.  Smoky with leather notes.  Still tannic.
