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.

Christmas Eve 2021

Drinking at home.

2000 Dom Pérignon P2 - still kinda muted when popped. A bit of toast on the nose.

1998 Billecart-Salmon Le Clos Saint-Hilaire - nice and caramelized, with good ripeness but still got the acidity.

2006 Sine Qua Non The Raven Syrah No. 4 - drank 1 hour and 45 minutes after decanting. Really big and powerful, with tons of vanilla oak, really fragrant and woodsy, cedar notes, really nice and exotic. Second pour about 2 hours and 15 minutes after decanting showing metallic notes, really ripe and sweet on the palate.

2006 Arietta H-Block Hudson Vineyards - drank 2 hours after decanting. Smoky grilled meats, more ripe, almost jammy, and slightly metallic.

Full post on dinner is here.
