    June 22, 2019 - White wine dinner outside DC (Wilds of Gaithersburg - outside DC): Super sulfury nose. Reminds me of heavy lube oil. Did start to get some light apricot on the nose as the night went on, but the sulfur smell never blew off. The taste changed alot as the night went on. It gained weight, viscosity and interesting flavors as it sat. Alcohol is a tad noticeable, medium heavy body near the end with sugary notes. Fruit profile of peaches, quince, and apricot was quite nice. This needs 5+years and alot of air.

    June 30, 2017 - Very interesting. Lots of honeysuckle, lotus, jasmine, white flower thing going on. Then morphed into some apple flavor on last glass. 14.5% which was a surprise as thankfully didn't come through. Obviously well made. Finish could have been longer but hey, damn good regardless. Speaking of which, a tiny bit of hay as well. Am not sure how long this will age and would be curious to see what its like in a few years, although I don't see too much more upside with more time in the bottle.

    November 6, 2016 - What to drink before we die... (Restaurant Prinzinger, Düsseldorf (Germany)): In nice drinking condition right now. Good acidity balance and lemon notes.

    July 24, 2016 - Almost clear, yellow tinged. Nose of pineapple, tarragon, and candied fruit. Very complex and hard for me to describe. Notes of bitter honey and lemon curd at the finish. Slightly musty, with pervasive tastiness. Compelling more than delicious.
