    November 19, 2011 - No formal note, but this was outstanding. A little subdued initially and through the mid-palate, but on the finish? This was sublime. Truly remarkable.

    July 26, 2010 - getting better as it ages. Same flavor profile as last year, , but everything a bit more pronounced. Acidity still very nice, low alcohol.

    January 17, 2010 - Beautifully made. Drinks more like Puligny than a Californian. Pineapple, pear, peach and oak. Cream upfront, nice acidty, great mineral notes on the finish. Wish I could buy more

    September 2, 2009 - Let this sit for another year. Definitely ready now, but it could use a bit more time to integrate the slight bit of oak. Enough minerality there to make it a very nice wine now, though.
