    October 16, 2020 - Notes of petrol, quite mild acidity and sweetness. I thought it lacked a bit of backbone, maybe not aging as well as one would expect.

    August 27, 2020 - Big wine with lots of fruit, off dry with good balance, but seemed to need to settle down. Much better two nights later. I'll give this another year or two.

    August 16, 2020 - See prior note
    Not sure if this was an off bottle, wine shut down, or just evolution.
    Flat nose, dried white flowers, petrol, lychee, hints of dry pineapple, medium weight with sapidity, palate long, good concentration, little tension with strong strawberry notes, texture in some ways reminded me of a white Rhone, my guests also picked up red plum/red cherry. Enjoyed with grilled lobster and served 45-50, Purchased from distributor and stored accordingly, drink or hold… Na zdrowie

    July 3, 2020 - Shared with friends at an outdoor, distanced get together, this brought us all a lot closer. If I had to pick a single word to describe the wine it would be harmony. Everything was exactly where it needed to be. This was the first vintage for the wine, so I had been wondering when it would hit an early peak of deliciousness. Now I know!

    February 15, 2020 - Eep. I thought this would be showing much better right now. It's developed a fair amount and is surprisingly deep-toned when first opened, though it does brighten up in the glass. It's also much drier-tasting than my last bottle, but the fruit has an almost wincingly bitter streak reminiscent of a big helping of grapefruit rind with only a small helping of the actual fruit.
