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.

99 Matriarch and friends

Dinner at ZEST by Konishi.

Delamotte Brut - toasty with good acidity.

2018 Domaine Thomas Sancerre Le Pierrier - floral, tropical, with flinty notes.

2013 Liger-Belair Vosne-Romanée - unfortunately the wine was too warm.  Showed lots of toast, along with leather notes.  Very beautiful for a village wine.

1999 BOND Matriarch - decanted for 1 hour prior to serving.  Very minty, smoky, with pencil lead along with sweet fruit underneath.  Very ripe and sweet on the palate.  Really open nose with decadent fruit.  1½ hours after decanting the wine showed explosive fruit, more woodsy notes.  Still very concentrated on the palate.  Two hours later showed some coffee notes.

Full post on dinner is here.
