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.

Another Sine Qua Non night

Dinner at Table.

2004 Sine Qua Non The Rejuvenators - a blend of 56% Roussanne, 24% Viognier, and 20% Chardonnay.  Opened almost an hour before serving, initially showing a little grass and lemon citrus notes.  Opened up more and got better after 80 minutes or so, but never really reached the heights of many other SQN whites.

2007 Sine Qua Non Stripes and Stars - a rosé made with 55% Syrah and 45% Grenache.  Lots of minerals, fruity, with a hint of leather.

2005 Sine Qua Non Over and Out - this Pinot Noir was a little earthy, with sweet fruit and a little leather in the nose.  When it opened up, it showed beautiful floral and violet notes.

2010 Sine Qua Non Five Shooter Grenache - made with 75% Grenache, 16% Syrah, 2.5% Mourvedre, 4.5% Roussanne, and 2% Viognier.  Mint, eucalyptus, and very floral.  Wonderful ripeness and sweetness, with huge concentration.

2005 Sine Qua Non The Naked Truth - 90% Grenache and 10% Syrah.  Fragrant with cedar and mint, along with violet notes.  So ripe and sweet, and so beautiful.

2002 William Selyem Port Mistral Vineyard - sooo rich and sweet.
