    April 8, 2016 - BYOB Night at Foreign Legion (Foreign Legion, Mpls, MN): Light gold color. Drank 1 glass over 40 minutes. This was good as usual, big and buttery, stone fruits, brisk minerality, a little floral, lighter oak, holding up well. Great with the creamy lobster bisque. 91+pts.

    March 5, 2016 - Light yellow-green hue. Citrus, lemon, tropical nose. Nice easy drinking with or without food. Butterscotch aftertaste. Yummy wine that is drinking great right now.

    November 15, 2015 - Last minute Pinot tasting (Kevin's House): Quite full bodied. Butterscotch. The nose and palate is enticing, but the finish on this bottle is rather hot. This was significantly worse than a bottle from the same source a couple weeks ago. Too bad.

    November 14, 2015 - Pinots and Few More (Rocknroller's (Kevin & Vicki's Place)): Light medium gold color. Drank 1 glass over 40 minutes. This was good as usual, not the powerhouse that it was 12 to 24 months ago. Still delivers well with tropical fruit, oak, apple, pineapple, peach, butter toffee. It is not quite as vibrant, and my sense though is that this has crested and is now on a slow decline. I'd drink these sooner rather that later, but I think they will satisfy for another 2 years.

    October 24, 2015 - Light-medium gold color. Drank 1 glass over an hour. I didn't take notes on this but it was as good as always. Very well made with nice texture, good acid and nice apple fruit with crisp acidity. Love the style here.
