    May 31, 2016 - Drank with the Kindlers. Still fairly oaky, lots of tropical fruit, highly concentrated, but also with good acidity and some minerality. This is a big wine and not for the feint of heart--although it's big, it's certainly not lacking in charm or nuance.

    May 27, 2016 - This was pretty terrific, a definite "wow"! Quite dark yellow color. Great nose. Marmalade, tropical fruits all mingled. Has put on weight. Drinking spectacularly and I think has improved with time. Not sure how long window is but several years easy.

    July 11, 2015 - Medium gold, peach and tropical fruit, very well balanced.

    July 6, 2015 - Drank at Blanco's for July 4 holiday. Medium gold color. Some floral & tropical fruit notes, along with honey and oak as is the norm with this wine. A big wine, with lots of fruit & still lots of oak, but a solid acidity level with a pleasant minerality. I think this wine will benefit from a few more years of bottle age.
