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.

02 Matriarch and Valbuena

Dinner at Mián.

Ise No Nami Junmai Daiginjo (イセノナミ  純米大吟醸) - very sweet on the nose, with pretty fermented notes of rice lees.

2007 Charles de Cazanove Tradition Père et Fils - yeasty and very nice, with caramelized nose along with marmalade. Good depth on the palate.

2002 BOND Matriarch - decanted for 1½ hours before serving. Lots of woodsy fragrance. Initially showed plenty of good fruit but a little lean. Two hours in this was really exotic with coconut butter, and pretty sweet on the palate. Drinking really well.

2015 Vega Sicilia Valbuena N° 5 - decanted for 1½ hours before serving. Eucalyptus, a little smoke, ripe fruit, and very fragrant if alcoholic nose.
