    November 15, 2017 - Moderately deep yellow color. Nose is dominated by pear, but aspects of peach, mango and citrus are present. This is a huge wine , buttery, vanilla, white fruits, tart lemon, tropical fruit and it has truly impeccable balance. Super long finish but oak is very noticeable. Vacuvined and kept for two days , good but did slide a bit.

    November 6, 2017 - Enjoyed over two nights. This is nicely mature and classically styled. Full nose of mature white fruits, light honey tones, minerals and citrus peel. Round with mature, aged fruit on the palate. Good concentration, if a bit soft. Still a trace of zesty acidity on the back end. In a nice spot, but on the edge of being too advanced for my taste. Drink now.

    October 29, 2017 - The bouquet was exotic, showing a spritz of lime as crushed stone and hints of smoke led into an tropical tropical array of papaya, banana and mango. It was ultimately very rich on the nose, yet the mix of citrus, minerals and savory herbs kept things quite interesting. I found incredibly soft textures on the palate, yet offset by a twang of mineral-driven acidity with notes of pineapple, banana and tart lime, which lasted throughout the long finish along with a hint of savory herbs. This wine is a bundle of energy with throwback oak stylings, however, still quite complex and quite fun to drink.

    October 4, 2017 - This bottle seemed advanced. Much darker golden color than I expected. Plush in the mouth with lots of ripe apples and pears and tropical fruits, finishing with a big streak of salinity. A little unbalanced and flabby lacking the freshness to keep it all together. But a good drink nonetheless. Don't seeing this particular bottle improving. On this occasion, drink up.

    October 1, 2017 - Spectacular, ripe tropical nose and palate. Singing this night, and for another 2-5 years.
