    March 20, 2008 - Nice balance of citrus and pear, with a nice minerallity. It is really coming together nicely, and in about 6 months should be absolutely stunning.

    December 29, 2007 - After staring at this bottle on the rack for a few months, I decided I couldn't wait to put the poor bottle out of its misery so I took it over to a Holiday Open House at my wife's co-worker's home. OK, the wine is finally doing what it was probably meant to do all along. It's finally in balance -- nice acid, but in balance with the rest of the wine. Delicious layers of pear, lemon and lime with a great minerality (limestone) that has never shown its face before for me. Nice finish too. If only I had waited to drink all of these bottles until now. <sigh> 90 pts.

    September 29, 2007 - Gold in color, again with a good amount of sediment in neck. Nose is nice with toast, butter, lemon/lime comes out with a little air. On the palate this is nice and crisp. Toasty oak, tart fruit, and lemon custard or keylime pie shows up. This is my last bottle and they've all been very enjoyable.

    August 12, 2007 - leaner and less overtly acidic this wine is just starting to come in to balance -- finally! Still too one-dimensional of a fruit profile though. Getting better. 86 pts.

    April 1, 2007 - Still tart and acidic and lemon-limey. Better than the last bottle but still disappointing. 85pts
