    January 3, 2014 - Beyond a doubt, the most shut down, closed-for-business white wine I've ever experienced. On day 2 it was revealing nothing. SFA. I'm staying away from this batch for another year or 5

    slight amendment. the last glass (of a bottle already opened for 24 hrs+) reveals a hint of what might come. imagine a cool fresh breeze blowing through an underwater cave. impressive. very happy to have another 11 bottles to play with

    October 8, 2013 - Light in colour, flowers, lemon on the nose. Light on the palate, very young, intense flavours, lots of acidity, very long finish. Softened a little over the course of 30 minutes or so. Should have decanted this.

    August 31, 2013 - Casual dinner at Home: Quite a bit of sulphur on the nose at first but that blew off after some time in the glass (again this should be have been decanted). Nose shows more obvious oak whereas the the palate has the perfect framing of wood. Loads of ripe yet crisp citrus notes with bright acids and great minerality. This was quite youthful but very enjoyable. Drink or hold. Excellent. 91+

    May 17, 2013 - Trip’s visit to DC - Capital Grill (Capital Grill at Tysons corner, VA): Fresh but ripe fruit expression, a hint of butter scotch, yellow fruits lemon curd and mineral. Good concentration, sweet fruits and bright acidity. This is ripe, sweet and fat but good dose of minerality and acidity make the wine fresh. Drinking nicely.

    May 5, 2013 - Pop and pour. Great, but certainly not epic. Great acidity, and probably drank it 3-4 years too young. Clean oak application, pears, spicy notes, and a very refreshing beverage with seared sea scallops. Love it, but not worth $80.
    Update: after an hour of air this got a lot better. Sulfur blew off, fruit came to the forefront, and acid is still making this super fresh. Give it 5 years and I bet this will be a 93-94 pointer.
    Update: 2 hours later, changed completely. Had great pear, spice, and a really high "delicious factor". Came into balance with the acidity, oak, and fruit, and NO HARD EDGES... Awesome. 93+ Still, too $$.
