Community Tasting Notes 8

    December 24, 2018 - Xmas Eve. Good on its own with notes of orange, honeysuckle, lemon and apple. Best on its own or with the guacamole with pomegranate and not as good with the French onion soup. (Would need to be older)

    I had the end 9 hours after being open and itbwas different, with more pear and bread notes, suggesting this would age well.

    Good qpr for $24. Drink or age

    February 26, 2017 - Lovely medium gold color.

    Evolving nose of honey, and candied citrus (lemon, caramel apple ), not quite at stone fruit, but will likely get there.

    Medium body with plenty of zingy acidity and lots of honeyed fruit on the palate with also a savory element. The finish is medium plus and this is a very impressive wine for this estate.

    Drink now or hold for up to a decade longer. This seems to have the potential to gain more complexity in the bottle if stored properly.

    Purchased at the estate in July 2015.

    May 15, 2015 - Bright citrus, orange and honeysuckle in the nose open to a vibrant, fresh, refreshing blast of grapefruit, lemons and vanilla in the crisp finish.

    December 10, 2014 - Really good. Peach, wet stone, cut grass on the nose; peach, stewed stone fruits on the palate. Full bodied. Round, soft, fruit-driven finish. Upside surprise.

    November 21, 2014 - From a different bottle than the last note. Bright and clear, very pale gold. Mineral, wet stone notes, white peach, tart citrus. Medium complexity, medium plus finish.A hint of savory herbs. Refreshing.
