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.

Turley and Trimbach

Drinking at home.

1989 Trimbach Riesling Cuvée Frédéric Émile, en demi-bouteille - very caramelized and very sweet on the palate. Sweetness was surprisingly high and easily more mature than the vendages tardives I drank a few days ago. Plenty of honey and marmalade, orange blossom water, with a little bitterness on the finish.

2004 Turley Zinfandel Duarte Vineyard - drank 1 hour and 15 minutes after decanting. Very open now, a little pungent like rubber, and still kinda sharp and alcoholic on the nose. A little jammy, very nice nose of bacon and grilled meats, very fragrant, with tons of cassis and blackcurrant. Kinda toasty and almost got coffee notes. Very smooth on the palate. Drinking very well but would have been better if the piercing alcohol was toned down.
