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.

1998 Sine Qua Non Pinot Noir Veiled

Dinner at Forum (富臨飯店).

1998 Sine Qua Non Pinot Noir Veiled - Pinot has always been the weakest link in SQN's portfolio, but I love this wine mostly for its beautiful label created by owner Manfred Krankl. I double-decanted at home. The nose was alcoholic at first, but faded after a while. There was plenty of fruit, with grilled game meats and some sweet candy, mint and perhaps even a hint of medicine in the nose. Towards the end the nose became sharp again. The finish was a little short, and at the very end after 3 hours the wine tasted awful on my palate.

Full post on dinner is here.
