    May 27, 2016 - I think Cos82's note from 2013 says it well... but I also had the same view of another reviewer (e.g. that the acid isn't quite standing up to the primary part of this wine right now)... not sure the acid will emerge but if it does I think there is 2 pts of upside for my tastes

    April 10, 2014 - Just a small sip. Ap #31. Beautiful. Not quite youthful. So long. Got just two small but marvelous sips.

    April 8, 2013 - Agree with latest tastingnotes. This is very good right now. Intense and poised, long and lovely! Texture is very watery, not the least creamy. Excellent!

    March 7, 2013 - Stunning wine. Better than last time tried. No off nose this time and slightly sweeter. Golden yellow in color. Nice nose of peach, lychee, steel and a hint of petrol. Smooth balanced palate of honey, peach, steel, chalk and a tad of petrol. Nice sweetness that went well with spicy Sechuan cooking. Long finish.

    September 4, 2012 - Very pretty; a basket of fresh peaches, apples and other ripe orchard fruits tinged with honey, floral notes and just a faint tinge of sulfur that still lingers (though this was double decanted a few hours before being served.) It's incredibly youthful though with the fruit still very rich and the acidity barely perceptible beneath the sweetness. I imagine this will be a lot more enjoyable with time once the youthful sweetness starts to fade a bit, but right now it's really primary and more about potential than anything else.
