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.

Spanish evening

Dinner at the Hong Kong Club.

2019 Rafael Palacios Valdeorras Sorte O Soro - pretty fragrant, some flint on the nose. Good acidity on the palate but starting to show some ripeness on the nose, too.

1925 Marques de Murrieta Castillo Ygay Reserva Especial - pretty fragrant nose and still alcoholic. A bit smoky. Drinking pretty well 30 minutes after opening. Very lovely nose of plums. So, so beautiful after this opened up. Very alluring.

2013 Comando G Tumba del Rey Moro - pretty exotic and interesting. Still alcoholic and sharp, and certainly got plenty of sweet fruit.

1998 Pingus - decanted for about 1½ hours before serving. Nose with vanilla oak and a little coconut butter, minty, smoky, earthy. Very smooth on the palate and drinking very nicely. Could feel the tannins after more than 2 hours in the decanter.

1970 Vega Sicilia Unico - definitely some burnt rubber on the nose, some exotic spices, pretty sweet fruit underneath.

1964 Toro Albalá Marqués de Poley Palo Cortado Selección - very fragrant and certainly savory.

1980 Toro Albalá Don PX Selección - bottled in May 2021. Lots of exotic herbs. So rich, so viscous on the palate. Very, very sweet.

Full post on dinner is here.
