    August 11, 2014 - Very disappointing. I'd had previous vintages of this wine and loved them. This one is very flat and lifeless. None of the richness and acid I've associated with it before. No nose to speak of.

    August 8, 2014 - This was accidentally frozen, the cork popping out through the capsule, but it held up well for all that after thawing, and for over a two week (refrigerated, vacuvinned) period. Great stuff.

    April 17, 2014 - I had this with a chef salad on 4/17/14. It had a clean, fresh bouquet of hay, herb, lemon, vanilla, spice and mineral aromas. The palate was crisp and dry with flavors of lime, lemon, guava, herb, spice and chalky minerals.

    March 15, 2014 - Terrific, as always. Even nice after dinner with pineapple.

    March 14, 2014 - Opened at Anvil. Consistent notes as previous bottles, but a step up in class.
