    July 19, 2014 - Coompletely gorgeous wine. Apricot is the dominant note, with apple, peach, nectarine and the rest of the summer fruit basket coupled with viscous body, explosive aromatics, a finish that won't quit and enough acidity to keep it from being cloying. Marvelous job!

    March 1, 2013 - Translucent amber-orange-honey. Lovely in appearance.

    Honey, sweet alfalfa, hay, pollen. Mouth is thick, rich with dried peach and dried Turkish apricot. Completely coats the palate. Great acidity. Finish is rich and takes on same fruits, hints of vanilla. Very nice indeed.
