    December 26, 2014 - This wine was showing very well. The beautiful bouquet and palate are full of caramel, brioche, toasted nuts, clove and herbs, marked by viscous texture. Oily, heavy, and long-lasting on the palate. The effects of malolactic fermentation seem to be quite obvious (very buttery).. but I could be wrong. Great balance with acidity.

    November 1, 2014 - Viscous in the glass. Apricot, melon, nutmeg and burnt caramel on the nose and palate. Great with cheese plate.

    October 20, 2014 - Apricot, honey and butterscotch on the nose; citrus, orange peel, more butterscotch on the palate. Viscous, almost like a dessert wine on the finish. Not as bright or fresh as the prior bottle, but still tasty.

    October 6, 2014 - Nice wine with plenty of apricot, honeysuckle, melon rind, and toasty oak.

    September 7, 2014 - another rather advanced bottle....transclucent yellow/ deep straw, rather like a 10 year old chardonnay....a bit hot, nice, oily texture, butterscotch and citrus on the palate...drying finish. Down the drain.
