    July 17, 2017 - pnp. Medium greenish gold. A bit leesy on the nose with some butterscotch and iodine. Fruit fading on the palate to a dry finish. Past its peak; disappointing as the Rincon and Rosemary chards are quite long lived.

    January 22, 2017 - Continuing the downhill slide, but interestingly, has picked up a pineapple component that it did not have before.

    November 25, 2016 - Still drinking acceptably well, but definitely on the downhill -- drink what you've got.

    November 19, 2016 - Golden color. Ripe melon and apple aromas dominate the nose with a hint of toasted vanilla. Apple and melon flavors persist into a crisp finish. A bit over aged, drink now.
