    May 5, 2013 - had the qualities that I would expect...nutty, sherried, oxidized, creamy....I just found it to be a little thin. Lacking the freshness and lift that I like to see in great wines... seemed a little tied.

    July 29, 2012 - Ah, Yellow Wine, we meet again. Maybe it's your golden-urine color and bottle shape that intrigues me. Or the letters "JURA" etched on your neck, that you're sealed in yellow wax, or the Neil Rosenthal label on your back. Regardless, the sherry/oxidized butterscotch nose intrigues, as does the phat, round, yellow fruit, kerosene, sherry/butterscotch/carmel, high acid palate. I think the purpose of the color and nose is to weed out those oaky/buttery chardonnay people and let those who have trust to then enter the matrix. It's the acid that's most striking and surprising -- this is a great food wine. Will cut through cream, cheese, and fat like a knife. This would do well paired on a restaurant tasting menu (where you get half a glass or so and allows the sommelier to wax poetically) or split amongst a small group, or better yet, enjoyed entirely by me over a couple of days save for a small glass or two for my wife, who clearly will complain about the non-Chablis nose on this one. Her actual words were, "that's disgusting."

    June 24, 2012 - Flored [sic] by Puffeney's 2007 Cuvée Sacha. A contender for best wine experience of the year for its endless complexity and deep yet delicate texture. Immensely satisfying.
