    September 1, 2017 - In the "more interesting than tasty" category of wines. This wine scores high marks for concentration and complexity. The flavors taste (over)ripe and tropical. I discerned papaya, dried apricot, honey, raw ginger, and flint. The wine has a bitter edge that I don't like, and the overall tasting profile didn't appeal to me either.

    April 5, 2017 - The Rotating Dinners, I.8: Alsace (Chicago, IL): This was much more herbaceous than the 1993. Lighter, to be sure, with a bit less density. Brighter, as well, the acidity here was a little bit fresher. However, this didn't quite have the concentration and fruit, and I thought it came across a little boring, like there wasn't much to say. A few of us at the table had the relative descriptions of the 1993 and 1994 switched, so who knows if we were all talking about the same wine? In any case, I repoured this one to verify that I had the right one.

    November 27, 2016 - Riesling and Thai food (Sen Yai Sen Lek): Drank a small glass a a tasting. There is great complexity here. The palate is dry, consistent with Alsace with just a tiny bit of sweetness to balance the acidity and minerals. Really nice, although I'm not sure I'm a buyer at current pricing.

    November 26, 2016 - Monthly Tasting Group: A Bevy Rieslings and Thai Food (Sen Yai Sen Lek, Mpls): Medium dark golden color. Drank a small pour. This was probably the one wine that I was anticipating the most tonight. While it was good and I enjoyed it, it didn't really wow me. The nose was stronger than the palate, orange peel, orange, spices, wispy minerality; more subtle minerality and orange, citrus palate, tart

    March 18, 2016 - TN: Terrific wines (Loire, Germany, Austria, Alsace & Rioja) as Jeff & Dena Morris return to NYC. (Royal Seafood, NYC): Continuing the theme of muscular wines, this one takes first prize! Truly a monumental dry wine. It's large scaled with incredible depth and length. Ripe pineapple and stone fruits dominate the nose and palate with a strong earthy character and framed by a towering wall of structure. The flavors last and last and finish with a pleasantly bitter pith note. Tremendous showing and my non sweet WOTN. A.
