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.

Cabernet night

Dinner at Beefbar.

Legras et Haas Blanc de Blancs Extra Brut - pretty smooth and easy drinking, nice and rounded on the palate, some ripeness, a little toast.

1985 Cos d'Estournel - classic claret with smoky, toasty, minty nose with pencil lead and cedar.  Very lovely.

1989 Clinet - decanted for 1 hour prior to serving.  Fragrant nose with cedar and smoke.  Sweet on the palate.

2000 Sloan - opened for 3 hours and decanted just prior to serving.  Still sweet on the palate.  Ripe and almost jammy, with plenty of woody fragrance, a little mint and eucalyptus.  Still got a hint of sharpness and almost a little metallic iron.

Full post on dinner is here.
