    January 9, 2021 - Time to check in on the 2011 Ultramarine wines, and an afternoon with gougeres and playoff football seemed like a fine opportunity. The first impression was of an intense lemony flavor. The wine was very fresh and vibrant, showing more complexity and depth as it warmed from refrigerator temperature, and got some much needed air. Laura’s comment was “this is wonderful”, and who am I to disagree with her. It certainly seems like this bottling has plenty of runway.

    October 17, 2019 - Classic Martinelli’s apple juice at first whifff on the nose - isn’t as dominating as time goes on but wow what a visceral throwback to being a kid drinking apple juice out of a glass apple bottle. While the nose a strong apple dominance (with just a soft caramel touch) the palate is full of cheek smacking juicy acidity and citrus. This was over dinner so detailed notes are lacking but it was very enjoyable showing the appropriate balance between apple-citrus-cream-white flower freshness.

    June 23, 2019 - As good as the other vintages are, for me, the 2011 will always be the benchmark. Mouth watering acidity, tons of citrus, and now starting to develop just a little carmel nuttiness to it. Truly outstanding.

    February 3, 2019 - Good Wine with a Boring Super Bowl (Chez Kailin - Northbrook IL): Social walk-around tasting, brief note. Lean citrus aromas with similar flavors that are restrained but powerful. Long, energetic finish that I really enjoyed.

    December 31, 2018 - Rich and deep this time around, without the sharpness of the last bottle. Golden, baked secondary notes. Ostensibly, this is maturing, and doing so nicely.
