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.

Caymus, Bonneau and more

Dinner at a friend's home.

2018 Sylvain Pataille Marsannay Rosé Fleur de Pinot - very nice red fruits, definitely some minerality. Good depth on the palate.

2007 Henri Bonneau Châteauneuf-du-Pape - drank 45 minutes after decanting. Silky tannins here. A little fruit but not a lot. Certainly no sweet vanilla like before. Not too open and relatively closed, with some leather.

1995 Caymus Cabernet Sauvignon Special Selection - drank 45 minutes after decanting. Very fruit on the nose at first. Around 1½ hours after decanting this was smoky and not too much sweet fruit. Later on minty and became sweet-ish on the palate.

2002 Sine Qua Non Mr. K The Noble Man, from half-bottle - very sweet, very grapey, a little nutty, honeydew melon. Very rich and viscous on the palate.
