    December 22, 2018 - Chicago Wine Flock...Champagne Gala (Park Ridge Country Club): Small glass, brief note. Mango and candied orange peel with very good density and excellent balance. Less flamboyant than #11, but just as good.

    August 15, 2016 - Dinner at Marc's (Marc's Apartment - Chicago, IL): Thought this showed really nicely. Lots of dense fruit and the combination of the fruit and acidity created a very nice package. We had this with a selection of cheeses, and I found myself sipping my way through my glass super quickly.

    April 14, 2013 - Purchased on release. The color is dark gold, or could be called mahogany or dark amber. The color in the bottle is as dark as many 50+ year old Sauternes. Very rich more than just sweet. There's a lot of sweetness here but it's perfectly balanced with the acidity that's hanging on there well, making for a really complex wine. The flavors are stone fruits with a layer of burnt caramel over the top. This is a near perfect sweet white wine, "near" because I don't know what a perfect wine is.

    March 6, 2012 - This continues to disappoint me. Perhaps there are nuances I am not getting but this is overall flat and boring.

    October 4, 2010 - Dinner with Friends (Cotat, Pegau, Felsina, Saxum, Kracher): This bottle had leaked at some point, so I thought I should open it. As I suspected though, no harm for the wear. Light golden brown in color (diluted iced tea). The nose has great floral notes as well as some pineapple and honeyed notes. Viscous. Great acidity. Long finish. Some sugared pear notes on the wine.

    (Alois Kracher Traminer TBA #8 Nouvelle Vague) Dark amber color; honey, botrytis and brown sugar nose; palate reminiscent of Long Island ice tea, with tangy apricot, tart carmelized brown sugar, and maple, with good acidity; long finish
