    September 24, 2016 - Light golden yellow; pointed nose somewhat neutral, light butter; concentrated with good intensity and balanced richness; very well made

    July 3, 2016 - This is a plus sized model that somehow, against all odds, manages to win the pageant. You've liked the skinny ones your whole life, yet this has all the grace of the lightweights and more character and pizzaz, and you secretly give it the highest marks. Tropical, popcorn, almond, marzipan. The only thing to note is I don't think this vintage is an ager. I would drink in the next year or so, based on this bottle.

    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.
