    July 2, 2014 - Wines That Don't Suck (WTDS) Offline (Tilia, Mpls): Pale green-gold color. PNP, drank 2 glasses over 90 minutes. This was really, really nice, green tree fruit on the nose, with purified oyster shell, sea air, and some citrus zest. The palate is extremely well balanced, elegant, there is an amazing tension to the focused minerality, lime, lime zest, lemon, saline, subtle grapefruit, apple, and a very long mineral infused finish. This got my attention. 93+ to 94pts.

    February 3, 2014 - Consistent with my previous note. No sign of oxidation. Very tight but opens up with some air.

    October 4, 2013 - 08 is not my favorite vintage and this show why. Ok wine, but not splended for my taste. Maybe a few more years will help

    September 13, 2013 - Lovin' the minerality and calcerous flavs with the yellow fruits and biting acids.Very solid but keep your hands off for 5+ years!
