    April 26, 2013 - Great nose of roasted nuts, chestnuts really, burnished blood orange and macerated tomatoes. A surprisingly balanced palate, with moderate sweetness, extracted lemon oil, petrol, tobacco and orange curd. Not a huge fan of the nose, but a surprisingly elegant palate with dynamic flavor and great balance....excellent!

    January 12, 2013 - David White comes to town (Domaine Wine Storage and Sun-Wah BBQ, Chicago IL): Nose: This is a beautiful and balanced nose with all sorts of layered tones of leather, raisins, caramel, toffee, and roasted nuts. There is lots of depth and you just get lost in the glass as you smell it.

    Taste: Full bodied and very smooth. There is a satiny quality on the palate with layered and deep tones of raisins, caramel, toffee, roasted nuts, and some cherry pits too.

    Overall: Points don't begin to describe the experience of this. This is a beautiful wine that needs to be experienced and was a real treat.

    January 12, 2013 - Saturday with David White (Domaine Wine Storage & Sun Wah - Chicago, IL): Nice roasted nut and caramel on the nose - very powerful and room-filling. The palate was energetic and complex. Nice acidity on the finish with good apple, sweet lemon, and great minerality made this an absolute treat to try.
