    August 10, 2015 - Drank with Chad & Laura, good but a bit too oaky for me

    July 20, 2015 - Wonderful chard, but starting to oxidize. Good secondary flavors, but fruit is dropping out. Acid still good. Drink-em if you got-em.

    July 2, 2015 - Drank one of my two magnums. Dark golden hue. Drank wonderfully. Smooth and long finish. Need to find that second magnum.

    May 25, 2015 - My second and last bottle. Slightly better than the prior bottle. Beautiful rich golden hue. Needed and hour to aerate and release its aromas and flavors to their fullest extent. At this stage, oak seems to predominate over the muted pear and somewhat tropical aromas. Don't think this is getting batter, but rather should be drunk now... And probably better a year ago.
