    June 20, 2013 - Very enjoyable, as usual. Green apple, poached pear, and I love the zip provided by the bit of CO2.

    January 18, 2013 - Wine Night 1/18/13: Also posted this in the CT forums, but will use as my TN here:

    Not too complicated, but a very nice bottle at $20; I get apple, some pineapple, the wife got papaya, with some underlying petrol. Tangy, noticeable acidity on the finish...Definitely could lay some down!

    December 17, 2012 - More mineral than the previous bottle. Sharp, refreshing. Rebuy: yes.

    October 9, 2012 - Last bottle already! The acidity is quite sharp and others have noted the shortish finish, but at $20 I am seriously contemplating getting a bit more.
