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.

Champagne and Cali

Dinner at home.

Eric Rodez Grand Cru Rosé, dégorgée Avril 2022 - yeasty nose with good amount of red fruits, a little flint and minerals. Good complexity here.

2003 Kongsgaard Syrah - drank 15 minutes after decanting. The nose was beautiful! Really sweet and jammy, with blackcurrant, blackberries, a slight hint of metal and iron rust, a little leather, which opened up to a bigger nose. Some 2 hours after decanting this was a little on the warm side, but still going pretty strong.

1999 Etude Cabernet Sauvignon - drank a little more than 1 hour after decanting. Good concentration on the palate, with the color still inky. Smoky nose with graphite and a little woodsy notes. Showing really nicely some 2 hours after decanting.
