    March 23, 2017 - Delicious. I like how the broad, tangy raspberry fruit merges into sweet caramel and toasted walnuts.

    September 26, 2016 - Reticent nose of brown sugar. Sweet, with a gentle nuttiness and light honey flavors. Good acid, but comes off as a bit young and monolithic.

    From a bottle that had been Coravinned.

    March 27, 2016 - Seems like I have had better bottles of this; ample width on the palate, but not quite vibrant, intense and lengthy as this should have been. Meh.

    December 4, 2015 - Similar to my last bottle. Ample sweetness and richness, with a honey, caramel and fig palate. Could be a bit more lengthy and vibrant, but this was very good. As expected, this improved on subsequent days.

    November 12, 2015 - I seem to remember liking this a lot more. The last time I had this I recall better acids and a bit more of a mature palate. This time around it was a bit softer and lighter. Still delicious with nice caramel and dried fruit flavors, but not really as precise as it could be.
