    July 16, 2017 - Cabs and Merlot or Blend from Anywhere (Heirloom, St.Paul, MN): Light gold color. Drank 1 glass over 20 minutes. I hadn't had this in several years, and i thought this was one of the better examples I've had. This was very nicely yeasty, autolytic, lime, citrus. Good QPR.

    December 4, 2016 - Nice , inexpensive , by the glass at a restaurant, nice way to start the meal, okay bubbles, ripe apple, lemon, and a clean finish. Not bad for the price.

    January 23, 2015 - Local steak house had this by the glass. They opened a new bottle for me and it was corked. Last bottle they had behind bar.

    December 3, 2014 - Pretty similar to what I remember in past years, seems a little flat overall, indistinct citrus palate, light. Simple. Certainly drinks beyond its 12.99 price point, although I'd pop a couple bucks for the Roederer or Gloria Ferrer. Some really loved this. I will say i have liked it more in other years.
