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.

Kikuhime and 2001 Napa

Dinner at a friend's house.

Kikuhime Aged Daiginjo (菊姫  大吟醸  熟成酒), 8BY - this has aged for more than 22 years prior to release, so it wasn't surprising that the palate delivered lots of oxidized and savory flavors.  Very viscous and rounded on the palate.  So delicious!

2001 Karl Lawrence Reserve Gary Morisoli Vineyard - served about 1 hour after opening.  Very minty with animal notes.  After 1 hour 45 minutes still concentrated, but nose and opened up and became more woodsy and fragrant.

2001 Fisher Cabernet Sauvignon Wedding Vineyard - served 1 hour and 15 minutes after opening.  Very fragrant nose with lots of very ripe fruit along with smoky notes.  Medium- to full-bodied.  Drinking beautifully now.
