July 13, 2014 - Bright light gold green hue. Smooth and weighty with a long long finish. Creamy with green apples, lemon, almonds and salt with a buttery biscuit lingering aftertaste. Fresh and precise with great acidity and structure. Will develop complexity for years but fine now.1 person found this helpful Comment
March 9, 2014 - PopnPour, tasted over 2 hrs and day 2
-translucent pale gold
-gorgeous aromatics as it warms, citrus and the sea
-med++ acidity buffered with buckets of mid-palate sap give an incredible intensity and energy though not much finesse, moderate complexity, good length
-really opened up in the past 6 months; fantastic, if somewhat brutish at the moment, wine that will improve over several more years as it adds complexity and subtlety2 people found this helpful Comment

March 8, 2014 - Color: yellow/light gold. Delicious nose of lemon, lime, oyster shell. Palate a little young for my taste: minerals, grapefruit, lemon curd, some green apple. Large scaled with acidity to spare, this will probably improve but I much prefer the '05 Valmur from last night . . . .

September 23, 2013 - Meyer lemon, green apple, golden plum, hawthorn flower, and oyster shells. Great acidity and good concentration.
August 25, 2013 - PopnPour, tasted over 3 hours and Day 2
-light/med translucent gold
-reticent nose with a little bit of citrus becomes more expressive with creamy lemon and sulfur on 2nd day
-med acidity, big boned with sappy intensity and med+ weight/concentration but not revealing much complexity or dominant characteristic until the 2nd day when it explodes on the palate with a focused saline minerality, excellent length
-really shut down, needs several more years or a lot of air1 person found this helpful Comment
