    January 31, 2015 - Surprised to find that while some slight nutty flavors from age, this is still s fine drink. Rich lush and bold yet nicely balanced. In the style of a Batard. Drink up.

    September 2, 2013 - Very nice, but it has peaked and seems to be fading a bit. More secondary flavors. Nicely balanced.

    August 24, 2013 - Citrus, citrus oil, minerals, white pit fruit, vanilla oak, giveing way to toasted brioche and hazelnuts. Lovely layers of flavor. Long finish. Concentrated. Belies its age well.
