    October 19, 2014 - Amazing, intriguing. Dates and fig paste on the palate, along with additional notes of chocolate, dark roast coffee, baked toffee and a delicious note of lime acidity that cut through the richness and the sweetness. Nuanced and contemplative. Sag Harbor guys' weekend.

    September 27, 2014 - On the dry side, with racy, citric acids. High toned, with figs, lemons, citus pith and nut skin. Medium finish. Better after a few days of air.
