    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.

    February 13, 2014 - Jan's Birthday of "No Particular Significance" (Rocknroller's (Kevin & Vicki's Place)): Medium gold color. PNP, drank 1+ glass over an hour plus. Outstanding bottle. Nose is powerful, lemon, butter, toast, earth, minerality. The palate wow's from the start, lemon, melon, round and viscous, full bodied but not at all heavy, tangy with some citrus zest and minerality, medium plus finish. Reminded me of a fine Puligny-Montrachet. Seemingly at its zenith, yet showing no indications of a decline at present. I would be comfortable holding this another year or two. 93+ to 94pts.

    January 2, 2014 - We noticed some oak and melon on the nose. Rich and full bodied chardonnay with notes of lemon and apple on the body. Drinking pretty nicely right now.
