    May 30, 2016 - Showing beautifully. Lots of cranberries, wet earth, leafy notes, & violets. Palate was a nice combination of airiness and concentration of florals and fruit. Yum city.

    March 8, 2016 - Popped and poured; followed over three days (VV'd). Day Three was best. Soft red fruit, subtle sweetness, quietly delicious.

    January 9, 2016 - One note, a little clunky even. Not a great showing on this night.

    October 24, 2015 - A beautiful showing. No danger of decline, but I have a hard time seeing this get better. The aromatics were all one could ask for. The palate was open.

    February 22, 2015 - Brought to a relative's house and drank out of really bad stemware that had been washed with what, based on the smell of the residue, must have been dirty cat litter. And yet none of this was enough to mute the loveliness of this wine. Seems like it's in a great place and I cannot wait to try one in the comfort of my own home.
