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.

Henri Giraud and Arietta

Dinner at The Chairman.

1999 Henri Giraud Fût de Chêne - nose was salty and mineral, like salty plum, with a hint of Chinese licorice.  Beautiful wine showing its age.

2004 Joh. Jos. Prüm Wehlener Sonnenuhr Riesling Spätlese - polyurethane, flinty.  Nice acidity and ripeness.

2006 Arietta Quartet - lots of eucalyptus, potpourri, a little coconut and vanilla.  A little smoky with grilled meats.  Beautiful.  A little sweet on the palate but not too intense.

Full post on dinner is here.
