    September 30, 2018 - Light nose/body but still well balanced. Age showing on the edge. Good for another couple years

  • PSUSteve Does not like this wine:

    September 19, 2018 - PnP. Based on other’s notes, this must be over the hill. Not drinkable.

  • Grillgod Likes this wine: 92 points

    August 28, 2017 - Golden, slightly cloudy color. Rich caramel notes on first opening. After airing 30-60 minutes the heavy notes blow off it's a very crisp, rich, creamy, honey and tangerine tinged palate. Moroccan or Indian Food would go nicely.
