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.

1990 Penfolds trio

Dinner at Dynasty.
2015 Penfolds Yattarna - huge nose of toast, flinty, some buttery sweetness.  Really lovely.
The three reds were all opened for 1½ hours before decanting.

1990 Penfolds Bin 90A - a little savory soy sauce on the nose.  Still good concentration with some acidity.  A bit smoky.  Much more open after 1 hour in the decanter, showing beautifully some vanilla notes.  Two hours after decanting this was really beautiful, with some coconut butter and tropical notes.  My wine of the evening.
1990 Penfolds Bin 920
- unfortunately this was corked.  Still got the sweet vanilla underneath all the green and vegetal notes, with some smoke.  But kinda flat on the palate now.  Not undrinkable, just not enjoyable.
1990 Penfolds Bin 707
- still pretty tight at first, with a little smoke.  Showed better with the second pour.  Two hours after decanting it showed somewhat better, and pretty minty.  But still not really open.
Full post on dinner is here.
