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.

Dugat and SQN

Dinner at Howard's Gourmet.

1997 Sine Qua Non Twisted and Bent - 60% roussanne and 40% chardonnay. Decanted and served immediately. Wonderfully fragrant nose, initially lots of sugar cane, very floral with lots of orange blossom. Unfortunately this wine was much too oxidized, and the color was already orange. Finish was very short with metallic notes. The metallic flavors got more prominent with the pomfret. With more aeration the nose became toasty, and showed lots of coffee and mocha. Loved the wine for its nose all the way till the end, more than 3 hours later.

1988 Bernard Dugat Charmes-Chambertin - served undecanted 1½ hours after opening. Big and very savory nose, with soy sauce and tapenade notes. Also stewed prunes.
