    May 29, 2014 - Can't believe the great price on clearance. Meyer lemon, saline sea breeze, sour apple, nice finish.

    March 15, 2014 - I like it, but drank it too cold and over an extended time period. Let's see how bottle no. 2 fares. Definitely the potential to be a very nice, well priced, premier cru Chablis. Lots of minerality.

    February 1, 2014 - Pretty nose of meyer lemon, cream and green apple. Crisp, medium rich palate has pop, tension and verve. Good layers of fruit and mineral. Good length.

    November 28, 2013 - With Thanksgiving dinner; very nice bright fruit with little to no oak; crisp.

    October 20, 2013 - This smells like lemon and baked lemon peel, oyster shells and thyme. Upon tasting, this really coats the mouth, but without being heavy. The flavor profile is along the lemon/citrus spectrum. Maybe a hint of pine resin. Acidity comes in early and builds through the medium + finish. Hit its stride after about 2 hours open.
