    August 9, 2020 - Not sure if too old or just an off bottle but this was kind of flabby and not that interesting.

    July 26, 2018 - White flower, bitter lemon peel and a bit oily. Maybe a bit of white flesh peach in the nose but I don’t get a lot of white pepper except in the bit of “fizz” in the finish. Good tonight.

    January 6, 2018 - Counter to last taster, i thought that this was dynamite. This is dense and rich, which might be mistaken for "sweetness" but i do not appreciate any residual sugar in this bottle. the intensity of fruit is supported by an acid spine and CC thinks significant malo and some oak. finish is long. if you like your gruner lean and mean this is not the bottle.

    January 14, 2017 - I thought this was mediocre, overtly sweet (not just ripe), lacking depth or even secondary flavors. Lychee nut and some white peach. That's about it.
