    December 7, 2014 - bit of butter gives way to pineapple and pears. Little oily on the finish.

    November 29, 2014 - Medium gold color. PNP, drank 2+ glasses over 2 hours. This bottle was back to where I felt was peak drinking. The nose is focused with good purity, lemons and mineral sharing top billing with light floral elements that emerge after 20-30 minute, melon, light toast. The palate is precise, lemon, lemon oil, mineral, citrus zest, toasted nuts, , excellent depth and energy, intense with just a glint of sweet fruit essence on the mid and late palate. Very, very good.

    July 5, 2014 - Judith's Over the Hill and Under the Weather Event (Judith's House): Medium gold color. Nose has apple, tropicals, lemon, rich, toast. The palate has finesse, full bodied, lovely fruit, tropical, apple, long finish. This was served a bit too warm or it would have been better. 91+pts.
