    March 31, 2017 - Shows elegance, precision, and fine density. Nice representation of a rarely seen grape.

    November 23, 2016 - Another demonstration of how the Timorasso grape from Piedmont in Italy deserves to be ranked among the best white wine grapes. Enticing and richly perfumed. Strong, delicious, and refreshing mouth watering acidity. Citrus fruit flavors, especially lemon lime, almost like Riesling. Very palette cleansing, capable of removing any red wine as well as strong and highly fatty meats, including duck. A richly caressing mouth feel that is lushly textured. And finally, superb concentration.

    May 18, 2016 - Not bad. Drank over 3 days. First night had one glass. Was a bit restrained. Sort of a glossy Viognier feel. Floral. 2nd and 3rd day opened up more and was better.

    April 16, 2016 - Nicely balanced fruit (apple and pear?) and minerality. A nice counter to a Chardonnay on a spring day.

    December 16, 2015 - Very pale greenish yellow. Green apples on the nose, very fresh clean fruit on the palate with crackling acids, lifting at the back into a long finish. Simple but energizing and delicious. 50 + 14 + 16 + 8.
