    June 25, 2016 - Outstanding. Exotic fruit aromatics. Good balance of sweetness and acidity. Mouthwatering and great with food. There is real complexity here but you want to guzzle this.

    May 29, 2016 - Magnum brought to BerserkerFest at Jay Hack's. Just wonderful. Full, crisp with a nice balanced sweetness. Enormously complex with a very long finish. Stunning stuff. Goes perfectly with smoked pork butt.

    October 11, 2015 - This is in a great place right now, still holding onto a full range of fruit favors, while also showing more underlying minerals, and just a touch of a more evolved, smoky element. It's still quite rich, so there' plenty of room for further development. That said I may blow through these pretty quickly, as my wife really likes it!

    September 30, 2015 - This is drinking superbly. Packed with bright fruit - an array of ripe apples, peaches, and white cherry flavours, with more savoury smoky and mineral accents augmenting the fruit. Incredibly polished and silky in the mouth with a faintly creamy texture, remarkably light on its feet, and finishing very long.

    March 21, 2015 - starting to shed some baby fat. Good enough acid to make interesting now, but can't wait to try in 3-5 years
