    May 31, 2021 - Single blind tasting
    Aromatics high. Petrol. Orange zest followed by orange blossom. Spices, likely lime leaf
    Palate has medium + acid. No phenolics. Medium alcohol. Linear mouthfeel with a consistent core of acid and fruit. Pear, orange zest and spice.
    Finish has long length. Balanced
    Dry glass notes of lime oils, flowers and herb resin
    Drinks well now, but no hurry. I suspect this will age better than me.

    May 31, 2021 - Deep gold color
    Intense aromatics of Meyer lemon/ lime and orange zest and blossom with honey/cardamom/ yellow flowers and dry earth - extremely complex and all wrapped together with moderate petrol notes - outstanding
    Strong mouthcoating palate with flavors of ripe lemon and lime and nice underlying minerality
    Medium plus acidity with mild phenolic bitterness and medium alcohol with really nice length
    Really well balanced but quite intense
    Beautiful to drink now but appears eternal based on tasting today

    November 10, 2020 - Citrus, asparagus, passion fruit, very dense with good length, in its drinking window, can go on for years.

    May 4, 2020 - In a nice place and taking on pectic nuances to add to the earlier noted green herb/asparagus notes as it evolves.
    No rush if not for the longest haul. Till 2024.
