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.

Lucia and Hakutsuru

Dinner at home.

2009 Lucia, en magnum - very smoky, grilled meats.  Very sweet on the palate underneath the tannins, which were still a little grippy.  Big cedar nose after 2 hours in decanter.

Hakutsuru Super Selection Tenku Fukurotsuri Junmai Daiginjo Yamada Nishiki (白鶴  超特撰  天空  袋吊り  純米大吟醸  山田錦), 2019 - seimaibuai (精米歩合) of 38%.  Lots of banana and also some Anjou pear, acetone, with lots of starch in the nose.  Very sweet on the palate, but turned dry when temperature warmed up.

Full post on dinner is here.
