Bright & zippy with nice mineral and floral elements. Opened during a backyard BBQ and couldn't have been happier.

Pop and pour. Good body, with a complex, layered composition. Bits of lime zest, flint, white floral notes and pears. Palate was firm and energetic...nice acidity, good balance. Very tasty.

TGIF (Domaine Wine Storage - Chicago, IL): A bright, and energetic rose with some nice cherry, cranberry, and mineral tones. Nice balance...right in the zone.

TGIF (Domaine Wine Storage - Chicago, IL): I hadn't been familiar with this producer before today. Tons of ripping acidity (which i love) with a really complex flavor profile of biscuits, pears, cherry, white florals, and apples. Very nice.

2013 Vollenweider Wolfer Goldgrube Riesling Kabinett

TGIF (Domaine Wine Storage - Chicago, IL): Tasted so much more sweet than it did in January. Don't know how/why that was, but this seemed to have less balance and more roundness than I remembered. That said, this is still very good. Nice pineapple, tangerine, and mango tones with some nice airy florals. In a perfect world, I would have loved this to have a hair more acidity.

1975 Château Rieussec

Sauternes Sémillon-Sauvignon Blanc Blend more

7/25/2015 - tooch wrote: 91 points

TGIF (Domaine Wine Storage - Chicago, IL): A very clean and clear Rieussec with charming honey, peach, pear, tangerine, & coconut. Loved the exotic profile, and the sweetness, while there, was certainly dialed down a bit. Liked this a lot.

1999 Paul Jaboulet Aîné Crozes-Hermitage Domaine de Thalabert

Syrah more

7/25/2015 - tooch wrote: 92 points

TGIF (Domaine Wine Storage - Chicago, IL): A traditional approach to Crozes-Hermitage. Clayton mentioned that compared to more modern CH, this didn't "have the gloss" of many of the wines coming from there today. This was edgier, more meaty, more earthy - almost like a young Cornas. It's the kind of syrah I like.

1978 Joseph Phelps Cabernet Sauvignon Eisele Vineyard

Napa Valley more

7/25/2015 - tooch wrote: 95 points

TGIF (Domaine Wine Storage - Chicago, IL): So good, and from what I could tell, in perfect balance. Aromatics were deep, somewhat savory, and dark. Layers of earth, cherry, earth, and spice were woven together seamlessly. Palate was vibrant and fresh with nice acidity and soft, sweet tannins. Big fan of this.

1975 Château Malescot St. Exupéry

Margaux Red Bordeaux Blend more

7/25/2015 - tooch wrote: 92 points

TGIF (Domaine Wine Storage - Chicago, IL): Pulled right from the cellar, this needed some time in the decanter to flesh out and warm up. Beautiful claret, with an earthy/smokey nose with lots of old Bordeaux character. Elements of graphite, red fruit, roses, & soot blended together very nicely. Yum.

TGIF (Domaine Wine Storage - Chicago, IL): Seemed a bit closed at first. Needed some air for the stony and floral notes to pick up some steam. Nice core of ripe lemon & lime with a hint of some pear, too. In a good spot after some air.

7/25/2015 - tooch wrote: 95 points

TGIF (Domaine Wine Storage - Chicago, IL): After about an hour of air, the aromatics of salt, lime, and lemon really blossomed. The palate was bursting with exotic lemon and lime tones with some flinty undertones and lovely, airy floral notes. Easy to drink, and easier to fall in love with.

2014 Dirty and Rowdy Mourvedre 'ESPECIAL' Santa Barbara Highlands Vineyard

Probably a hair below the heights of the 2013, this had the lithe, beautiful red fruits, spice, and floral notes. Despite the composition and form, it all seemed a bit less complex than last years. Lovely wine...I think I suffered from going into my first bottle with incredibly lofty expectations.

Spectacular. Has all the class and elegance of Jouan with the power, structure, and fruit of the 2012 vintage. Great young, but will be even better with 12+ years on it.

HDH Auction (Tru - Chicago, IL): An outstanding rioja. Had the textbook nose of nutty, red fruit with earthy/floral undertones. Palate was in great balance with the secondary flavors on display along with great acidity and structure which bodes well for further development.

2011 François Raveneau Chablis Grand Cru Valmur

HDH Auction (Tru - Chicago, IL): I like where this wine is right now. Big and powerful, it has the weight of Valmur and the wonderful salty/lemony/floral notes of great Chablis. If it doesn't prematurely oxidize, this will be a masterpiece once some of the secondary notes develop.

HDH Auction (Tru - Chicago, IL): Thought this was great. Had a really nice profile of fresh berries, soft red floral notes, and some earthy undertones. That's what we're looking for in pinot, right? Seemed to check off the major boxes for me quite nicely.

HDH Auction (Tru - Chicago, IL): A very regal wine that might a bit past prime. Had some really nice white floral, tangerine, and peach notes. Acidity was a bit soft, though...gave it the feeling that it wasn't entirely fresh.
