    July 15, 2020 - Pop and pour. A little less acidity than I would prefer, but still a delicious wine. Complex and appealing.

    February 18, 2020 - Very nice, tropical fruit, blackcurrant leaf and citrus. Rounded and correct level of sweetness for a Soatlese. Good because 05 was a ripe year with a tendency to sweetness. Probably a point now.

    October 8, 2019 - Gorgeous, complex honey with hints of marmalade. Fully ready at this point. Went beautifully with chicken thighs with crushed green Castelvetrano olives, parsley, and white wine vinegar.

    January 13, 2019 - Yum. A little coconut on the nose. Fruit cocktail, slightly tropical, slight petrol. Very nice.

    July 4, 2018 - Slate and honeysuckle aromas immediately jumped out upon opening the bottle and were front and center in the glass; Lemon drops and honey crisp apples dominate on the palette; finish of candied orange peel and honey prevalent on long, creamy finish.
