    April 26, 2016 - Day 1 Beautiful golden yellow, very ripe in character. Delivers a fat mouthful of flavor but without the finesse and complexity of the 2012 Esprit blanc. Decant, let it breathe for an hour to develop aromatics, then chill it about 20-30 minutes to cool it down to about 55 F. Medium long finish. Worked well with Goan fish curry. 5 + 10 + 17 + 7

    Day 2 TBD Still good. A little more floral and peachy.

    February 13, 2016 - Decanted for 1 hr. The first glass was minerally & earthy (not that there's anything wrong with that). As it opened up more, tropical fruits & smooth mouthfeel really came forward. Really smooth & easy to drink. Wish I would have decanted it more than 1 hr. Drank over 3 hrs. Was fun to see it evolve as it opened up. Delicious.

    August 16, 2015 - Rich full bodied white. Excellent by itself or with a Mahi Mahi dish.
