    November 22, 2014 - My final bottle from this lot was quite disappointing. This seemed to lack fruit and the nuances that made the prior two bottles quite charming. One dimensional with an abrupt, slightly bitter finish. Even more disappointing was serving this over a nice dinner with friends. Not sure if this is just bottle variation.

    Served in a Riedel Vinum Cuvee Prestige glass.

    September 1, 2014 - Very nice Cava. Worked nicely as an aperitif.

    August 9, 2014 - Flat and lacking fruit. Two bottles from this lot, purchased at Vin Chicago, is not right.

    July 25, 2014 - Not as vibrant as previous bottles, this was a bit lacking. Cream, stone, yeast and almond notes. Toasted almonds, orchard fruit and wet stones on the palate, but lacking acidity- just seems a bit flat. Still good, but fell short of expectations.

    March 22, 2014 - Popped and poured, followed approximately 1.5 hours. Light gold with a pink tinge, showing a moderate bead which mostly dissipated after about 20 minutes in the glass. On the nose, chalky minerals, red berries, spice, florals, red apple, stone fruit, and a touch of yeast. On the palate, quote round, with moderate acidity, and tastes of red apple, underripe strawberry, mineral, yeast, rounding out the medium length, slightly bitter finish.
