    March 17, 2014 - Warm honey yellow in the glass. Nose of pear, caramel, flowers, apricot and dry stones. On the palate, pear, peach, candied perfume with more minerals and ash. Round in the mouth as the sweet notes fade and more dry rocky edges come out. Finishes nicely with hints of spun sugar candy fading out. PJG: 90-91

    November 14, 2013 - Very floral, but not obnoxious. Easily drank a bottle with my wife because is was so enjoyable to go back to.

    September 8, 2013 - Golden hue out of the bottle; pale yellow in the glass. Honeycomb, caramel and pear syrup on the nose; apricot, peach and caramel on the palate. Round, soft finish initially, but thinned considerably as the wine warmed in the glass. Serve this one cold, and let the magic happen as it warms up.
