    August 26, 2016 - Awesome. So much ripe nectarine, orange marmalade, mango, honey and brown sugar packed in here with just enough acidic push to stretch it into endlessness on the finish. A huge hit with the company present and it's great to hear the reaction to telling someone it's Chardonnay. The color is a beautiful golden bronze with flashes of amber at the edge. I'm sure this could last much longer and develop further complexity, but it seems to have no juvenile traits that warrant further rest, either. So delicious. 5+12+18+9= 94

    April 28, 2016 - Thick, unctuous, rich and incredibly sweet, the complex array of spicy orange, tangerines, apricot and tropical fruits slathered with honey was almost too much of a good thing. A little goes a long way with this sweet, treat. Blind, I would have guessed it was a TBA.

    March 23, 2016 - Sir Orr's Birthday Dinner (Totoraku): Perfectly balanced sticky. Not too sugary, but you feel like you want to chew on this nectar for hours.

    March 15, 2016 - Apricot and Honey. Great way to end a meal as the dessert. Will definitely buy more of it.
