    January 25, 2018 - Really pleased with this — enjoyed more than Donelan reds of recent vintages.

    August 14, 2017 - Beautiful wine. Gold in color, slight yellow/green tinge. On the nose, very pretty with slight floral notes, a bit of beeswax, some orange peel and minerals. On the palate, this is round, deep and complex. A big wine with citrus. Long finish. Worked well with food. Quite enjoyable.

    February 14, 2017 - Delish with poached lobster! Incredibly well balanced, rounded and full of both life and flavor.

    November 23, 2016 - Clear, medium-gold color. Primary/secondary aromas of honeysuckle bloom, beeswax, orange zest, mineral and stone fruit. Rich and bright on the palate, with forward notes of orange zest and peach marmalade, clove, white pepper and rose hips. Medium acidity, with a thick & broad structure, silky on the mid-palate, and lengthy spice on the finish. Excellent.

    August 20, 2016 - Tasting at Donelan- 8/13/16: Notes of nectarine and orange zest, with hints of minerality and spice. Really nice purity of fruit on the palate, silky texture, and lush fruit and spice on the finish. Very nice.
