November 27, 2020 - Holding up well, but drink soon if you have it.
February 2, 2020 - Tons of baking flour, nuts, lemon, apple, crumble and pear. All of this unbaked and therefore unlike myself. Awesome stuff and has five more years on it at least this bad boy is drinking young.
February 15, 2019 - Nose: opens with lemon rind, biscuit, almonds
Palate: under ripe fuji apple, crisp slate,
September 7, 2018 - Bye Bye Browns (Cryin' Lyon's): Even more elegant than I remember. Citrus, green apple, toast, saline, and pear notes are deep and linger. Osetra won in the caviar match up. Lots of time.
April 7, 2018 - Guys Night - Bordeaux vs Napa (Jason's House): Similar to previous notes. Pear stands out. Clean.
April 6, 2018 - excellent tiny bubbles!
April 4, 2018 - Aged High End Bordeaux Blends (Jason P's, St. Paul, MN): Light gold color. Drank 1 glass over 45 minutes. I really liked this. Nicely aged amd mature with a modest amount of toast, good character, red apple, earthy with some saline; there's a nice savory aspect and dose of almond on the palate. Very nice. 92+pts.
January 28, 2018 - A little sweet but very nice
January 27, 2018 - I get some faint yeast on the nose, one taster in our group suggested “cream cheese” which I think works alright. Beyond that I found this to be a very linear, serious presentation. Sherry is spot on. I got a clean, gin-like herb profile, with a laser focus.
December 10, 2017 - This is now starting to show the character of bottle aged Champagne. Slight note of an almost sherry nuttiness and great yeasty bread notes. I preferred it more on release but still an amazing sparkler.
