    June 27, 2016 - Beautiful golden color. Opens with a big nose of baked green fruits that stay on palate. Medium bodied but silky and what a finish!

    May 29, 2016 - Wooly, with a more chardonnay-forward profile. Krug autolytic notes and a very rich, orange fruit on the front. Mature, though certainly not in any danger of fading and may pick up some additional interest in time, but not a long ager as far as Krug goes. A bit angular, particularly next to the '96, but in a good place right now.

    April 16, 2016 - Duke's La Jolla, 4/16/16 (Duke's Restaurant, La Jolla, California): Cork stamped "V451." Clear straw yellow with persistent fine bead, gradually disappearing after an hour. Rich, generous notes of apples, Meyer lemon, quince, with appearances of flowers, limestone, ginger, butterscotch, coconut, toast, shiitake, cider, nougat, almond biscuit, and ladyfinger cake on and off throughout the evening. Magnificent wine with full body, laser-fresh acidity, creamy mouthfeel. Amazingly complex, crisp and fresh, with long finish. Outstanding at first pour and improved from there, gaining weight in the glass.

    April 13, 2016 - Return to San Antonio III - barolo/bordeaux (Mike O): Softer and more plush than expected but that made it more enjoyable on this night with tons of acidic wines. Nose was fantastic Krug brioche.

    (Krug) A very powerful nose, oaky and stony, oiled wood, this already seems like a powerhouse of a wine. Very firm on the palate, with lots of depth, very broad style, showing good depth and promise. Very stylish but very primary and immature, very indrawn and firm. It needs considerable cellar time, but rest assured this will be very impressive when mature.
