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.

Kistler and friends

Dinner at Seventh Son.

1990 Bruno Paillard Le Mesnil, dégorgée en Mars 2014 - nice balance here.  Dry-ish but not too acidic, and not overripe, although definitely kinda lean.  With the second pour came salted/preserved lemons, with a bigger palate and longer finish.

2004 Domaine Leflaive Meursault 1er Cru Sous Le Dos d'Ane - very ripe and buttery.

2010 Castello della Sala Cervaro della Sala - big, toasty nose.  Ripe and very big on the palate.

2009 Joseph Drouhin Bâtard-Montrachet, en magnum - very ripe.

2006 Kistler Pinot Noir Kistler Vineyard - eucalyptus notes.  Sweet-ish on the palate.  Still fairly concentrated.

2005 Kistler Pinot Noir Kistler Vineyard - more open than the 2006, but seemed a little subtle.

2003 Kistler Pinot Noir Kistler Vineyard - a bit gamey, stinky barnyard, leather.  Still kinda sweet on the palate.

1989 von Schubert Maximin Grünhäuser Herrenberg Kabinett - good acidity balance, not too acidic, some ripeness.  Lemon citrus notes.
