    December 14, 2014 - I wish I had been able to track this over the years. This bottle just seemed tired and flat. Still enjoyable, not at all sweet, enough acidity to stand up to food. Overall very unremarkable.

    July 21, 2013 - Mid amber and viscous made me anticipate some sweetness, yet none followed. Rich, yet not hard to drink. A dead on pairing with the kimchi oyster at Benu. Very good and certainly at no risk of fading.

    April 27, 2013 - Unreal. Not sure it can get any better. Great, nutty nose with baked pear. Sandalwood, candied lemon, and orange liqueur taste with fantastic length and acidity. The finish was timed at 45s. This is an unbelievable wine, in a great place right now.
