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.

Yattarna, Dugat, and more

Dinner at TIRPSE.

2003 Penfolds Yattarna - sweet and caramelized nose, but there's still acidity on the palate that was kinda ripe, with additional Chinese licorice notes.  Definitely over the hill.

2002 Claude Dugat Gevrey-Chambertin 1er Cru Lavaux St. Jacques - decanted for 1 hour.  The nose was kinda strange.  A little plummy with a hint of smoke.  Kinda disappointing.

Drinks at a friend's home.

1999 Gaja Sorì San Lorenzo - opened more than 3 hours prior to serving.  Smoky, burnt rubber.  Still tannic but acidity is there.  A bit minty and eucalyptus with some woodsy notes and a little black pepper.  

2003 Quilceda Creek, from magnum - opened about 30 hours earlier and quadruple-decanted.  Nose of dried herbs and a little Chinese medicine.  Kinda jammy.

Full post on dinner is here.
