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.

Dagueneau and Boekenhoutskloof

Dinner at Dinner by Heston Blumenthal in London.

2010 Dagueneau Silex - the first glass I was poured didn't seem fresh, and the staff poured me another glass from a different bottle which was nice and fresh.  Surprisingly ripe and sweet on the nose, almost candied pineapple, a little muscat.  Later the nose was more flinty.  Good acidity on the finish, and a little grippy.

2006 Boekenhoutskloof Cabernet Sauvignon - nice nose of graphite, some ripe fruit, smoke, cedar, and woodsy notes.  A little sweet on the palate.  Drinking well now.

Yamazaki 18 Years - very sweet, and almost honey-like on the nose... with some nashi notes. Not too smoky and peaty, with almost a hint of bee pollen.

Full post on dinner is here.
