    January 12, 2013 - Nice with fish and meyer lemon. Honeyed but not oth. Not particularly complex or long.

    May 24, 2012 - Grand Sichuan jeeb with Oswaldo (St. Marks Place Grand Sich, NY): A nice way to start the evening; fresh citrus, pear and apple fruit accented with yeasty and savoury elements and turning more stony and minerally on the back end. Very youthful and lively with gentle effervescence but bright acidity and good length.

    December 31, 2010 - The minerality shows through the perceived flab on the palate of this wine with air. Large bottle variation. Interesting for geeks...not so much for the rest.
