July 27, 2015 - Absolutely loved this wine. It had great mouthfeel, nice weight, yet finished clean with great acidity. It paired perfectly with panko and parsley crusted scallops.

March 6, 2015 - Best bottles (2) yet. At a perfect place for this wine. Really drinking well. Beautiful floral nose, great melon/fruit flavors, smooth mouthfeel, balanced acidity. Nice! I like this wine opened about an hour prior to consumption. Just seem to improve the wine a bit.

March 1, 2015 - Opened with an oxidized note, which resolved on aeration, becoming much better in the glass. medium amber hues, melon and fruit notes, smooth mouthfeel, viscous. Nice wine. Should drink now.

January 9, 2015 - Light yellow color. Floral and citrus nose. Lemon and mineral flavors with a richness. Some detracting discordant notes, but still a good wine
