    February 24, 2017 - Complex mix of sweet, sour, and nutty. Nose of varnish, nuts, red fruit jam, and toffee. Rather strong tannins on the finish for a 49 year old wine. Lots of power here.

    February 18, 2017 - My 40th Birthday Weekend; 2/17/2017-2/20/2017: Caramel, honeysuckle, toasted almond, dried lemon peel with a beautiful sweet palate. This was gorgeous.

    December 27, 2016 - The wine has a dark caramel color. The nose is absolutely superb. It smells like toast, almond, hazelnut; clearly the most striking of flavors, caramel also comes to mind. The wine is silky and rich, and yet has a surprising acidity....it probably will last another few decades. What an achievement!

    October 7, 2016 - Unreal. Rich layers of sweetness accented with bright acidity and delineated exotic spice notes. Effortless palate weight & certainly more than a dessert wine. Loved every sip.
