    January 30, 2017 - Unrateable, but such delight. There's a bit of SB sweat to the nose, but in every other way you're off the map here. Preserved lemon, grilled rosemary, cheese, salted caramel -- all of these things are in play. A bit simpler on the finish (and hotter/spicier) than I recall -- but this 2011 is still pretty electrifying, all things told.

    August 4, 2015 - This smells like a nice funky apple cider. Apples/barnyard. The flavors have an interesting kiwi/melon/pineapple combination up front then the apple/barnyard with pomelo on the finish. Medium acidity/light minerality. Always unique.

    December 24, 2014 - If you look at my history, I almost never post notes. I drink wine not analyze it. But this wine is very special, and the Chambers Street Wines website says it best:
    "Not for quaffing — this is a wine of contemplation..."
    Thank you, David and the staff at CSW.

    December 15, 2014 - Such a good wine. Pear notes, stony, a hint of butterscotch, with an elegant texture. Fairly powerful. I think I liked it best on day one but by day three it had developed a delicious brininess.
