    April 30, 2017 - Last Puppy Night wine. Great on PnP, continued to open over several hours on night one, then overnight. Still showing that great greeness from the whole cluster fermentation. Plenty of structure to continue to age, but really great now.

    July 27, 2016 - Too bretty for me - maybe there was something wrong with the bottle given the other rave reviews.

    June 1, 2015 - Last lunch club meetup for a while (Sydney, Australia): Stem, spice, graphite, cherry and violet. Light bodied profile, I like the balance and the lean green style.

    March 15, 2015 - I think this was the correct vintage but I won't swear by it. Great bretty nose, borders on too much for some, red fruits, medium plus body, very nice.

    November 6, 2014 - Consumed over two nights. Very consistent with prior bottle consumed 8 months prior. Smoked meat on the nose, with a touch more green than before, giving more indication to the Cab Franc. On the palate, very green, bell peppers and a touch of grassiness. Very enjoyable. Will hold the remaining bottle for several years before opening.
