    April 18, 2016 - Fully mature.
    Green apples and ripe pear with herbal tones. Broad but with a mineral core and (just) enough acidity to bring into balance. A tad more grip (for my taste) would have moved this considerably up the the scale of excellence - not that I'm complaining!
    Drink up.

    March 3, 2016 - This wine made a great appetizer wine. The fruit is very ripe but there is enough acid to carry it through. Beautiful finish. Worked very well with the Quail Wellington. (Cornutt)

    June 29, 2015 - Rockstar juice. Crisp pear and yellow apple, saline, seashell, acid, stone. Powerful and youthful. This maintained its structure and balance over two days without missing a beat. Impressive. Very un-'06. Recommended.

    May 16, 2015 - very nice, had the acid to balance but the tension was gone and Tiff noted a discernible caramel flavor (which we think of as bottle age / mild oxidation)... i'm not surprised given it was 2006, it wasn't to point that I didn't enjoy it but we will drink up asap on this wine, one btl left

    April 9, 2015 - Workshop Faculty Dinner (My House, Denver, CO): Lemon skin in color. Nose offers up lemon curd, apple, wet stones and floral notes. Fruit weight is a bit heavy for a Chablis but its creamy texture is cut nicely by chalky mineral and acid. This is not a tense wine, rather leaning towards depth of flavor and penetrating length. I was at first worried about the pair to this sushi-like octopus dish, but the acidity made the weight seem light enough and let the flavors match extremely well.
