    December 17, 2017 - Really late lunch – blind esoteric and not so esoteric wines at Q by Peter Chang (Q by Peter Chang - Bethesda, Maryland): Slightly oxidized.

    March 22, 2015 - Powerful nose with lots of secondary characteristics alongside orchard fruit and spice. Good weight to the palate. Loads of succulent fruit yet dry, saline, and lifted. This kept changing over the course of the night and held up in the glass for hours.

    March 12, 2011 - Magnum Madness 2011! (Marshall's place): Really intriguing deep golden color. Impressive deep aromas of honey, some pineapple, and a certain oily notion. Great, deep structure on the palate, with some honeycomb and some earthiness. I also get a nice petrol note which carries into some apricots. The texture and richness of the mouth feel are wonderful. Really nice acids permeate my scenes on the finish. Awesome length and delicious richness as the acid carries complexities deep into the finish. This evolves impressively for 40 seconds. The window on this is certainly open, but it will likely continue to go for some time into the future.

    July 21, 2010 - Rich and complex, with some strong white pepper flavors overlaying pineapple and pear. Oily texture and mouthfeel. Basically dry with the rich fruit giving an initial illusion of sweetness, but the finish is dry and more salty than sweet.

    July 20, 2010 - 14% ABV. Medium gold in the glass. Slight petrol nose. Complicated oily smell. Rich, medium bodied with some more petrol and something like pineapple, but not quite that ripe - vaguely tropical. Savory finish. Paired surprisingly well with a salad course.
