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.

SQN duo

Dinner at Lotus Bistro at the Ladies Recreation Club.

1996 Sine Qua Non Omadhaun and Poltroon - slightly more roussanne than chardonnay. Decanted and served. Very, very sweet on the nose, caramelized for sure and definitely ripe on the palate, but still got the acidity.  The chardonnay was very obvious.  Got better with the second pour, really sweet like sugar cane.  After 1½ hours it was even better.  At 2 hours in it was also a little metallic, along with Chinese licorice.  Sweet and so fragrant.  Really fantastic after 2½ hours.

2012 Sine Qua Non In the Abstract - 37% chardonnay, 31% roussanne, 16% petite manseng, 16% viognier. Decanted and served.  More funky nose with tropical notes, beautiful, toasty notes coming out, with some bubblegum.  After 1 hour in decanter it was sweet and beautiful.  After almost 2 hours there were also some metallic notes.
