    July 13, 2014 - World Cup Final (Domaine Wine Storage - Chicago, IL): A tough bottle of wine to like. Lots of stink on the nose and layers of cheesy, veggy flavors throughout the wine.

    July 13, 2014 - Getting Wine Geeky for the World Cup Final (Domaine Wine Storage, Chicago IL): I really don't want to say too much about this very forgettable wine. There was a ton of spritz on the nose with some cranberries, dark red cherries, and various over-ripe tones. The palate was a near trainwreck as it was VA city. While it's not one of the worst wines I've ever hard, it is far from enjoyable and there was a reason that there was half the bottle left by the time everyone left.

    December 17, 2013 - Nose closed on opening, untypical for this wine. Some sharp cherry as it opened up. Stinging acidity on entry with a tremendously sharp flavour profile. Like a high acid rose frankly. This is thin but extremely full of sharp cheese flavours. Takes a special person to like this. Will be fascinating to see how it evolves.

    November 11, 2013 - One of the strangest bottles of wine I've ever experienced. This does not have a traditional structure so it's hard for me to gauge exactly how well it performs compared to others of this style. The acid is huge and prickly which turned me off a bit. However, each swirl of the glass changed the experience. Clearly on the red fruit spectrum, this should definitely be served alongside food. Visually, it is unfiltered and cloudy with who knows what. All this said, it was an interesting bottle worth a look if you've never had this style.
