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.

Tarlant and Biserno

Dinner at China Tang.

1996 Tarlant Saga, dégorgée en novembre 2004 - wonderful nose of aged tangerine peel, savory, mineral, and toasty notes. Beautiful to the end.

1988 Maximin Grünhauser Riesling Abstberg Spätlese - tons of white flowers, really lovely, with classic petrol notes along with some lemon. Definitely slightly sweet and mature on the palate.

2007 Biserno, from magnum - decanted 1 hour after opening, and served 45 minutes after decanting. Absolutely beautiful! Soooo fragrant with lots of cedar and woodsy notes, very sweet and plenty of vanilla on the nose, almost jammy. Still full-bodied and concentrated.

1998 Montelena Cabernet Sauvignon - popped and poured after decanting. Nice and fragrant, woodsy, slightly savory, a little smoky. A little ripe on the palate, with a very nice balance between sweetness and maturity.

Full post on dinner is here.
