    September 8, 2019 - Interesting to try this again. Apricot, orange blossoms, and a hint of petrol on the fragrant nose. Medium acidity, with flavors of oranges, ripe apricots, and orange peel on the palate. Very nice finish.

    August 30, 2019 - I found this disappointing. Classic flavor profile, medium weight, but too soft, lacking structure and acidity.

    June 3, 2019 - Spectacular. The fruit has calmed down some since its youth, and the mineral and herbal flavours are more apparent now, along with the start of lightly savoury creamy and smoky notes. The sense of sheer lightness and vibrancy on the palate that I recall from its youth have not changed a bit, and this is absolutely thrilling to sit and follow right now.

    November 5, 2018 - Dark golden, really intense pterol note. A bit alcoholic and lacking some acidity. Drink up.

    August 18, 2018 - Stone fruit, petrol, dried apricot, and orange blossom on the nose. Great balance with orange peel, citrus, peach, and a hint of honey flavors on the palate. Long finish. Wife: 91
