Never tasted anything like it!!!! This 60-year-old Pommard clone of Pinot noir was absolutely amazing and don't know what to compare it to, but what a treat, both in tase and smell!!!

Exceptional showing!! I'm a huge fan of older California Cabs, to me it's such a treat to open a 25 a yr old time capsule and taste the gift that time has prepared! This one was beautiful to smell and taste, well integrated, balanced, a depth of character!

Probably one of the best Chardonnay's I've had, a great example of what the grape can show without the big oak and butter!

Wow, this one threw me for a loop! PnP and it was stringent, harsh even, wasn't sure what was going on with it, then upon sitting in the glass for half an hour it started to evolve into a completely different wine, actually drinkable and even enjoyable as the evening went on. Must decant next time!!

Got excited, couldn't wait to open a bottle of the shipment I just received, phenomenal, jammy, well integrated, still a little tannic with a touch of acidity. I'll give it a couple of months before I open another bottle so it can settle down from all the disturbance in transport.
