    May 26, 2019 - Nice nose of flint, lemon peel, and just a hint of butterscotch. Nice oily texture and balancing acidity on the palate. Still young and I think will stay strong for several years, but not sure it will pick up more complexity.

    April 5, 2019 - PnP. Medium light gold. Crisp green apple and citrus on the nose. Excellent balance on the palate in a restrained way; nice basic Chard but nothing outstanding.

    March 23, 2019 - Delicate nose of Key Lime and jasmine, with a hint of warm dough. Very round texture on the front, with the smooth acidity picking up steam as it rolls through the palate. Poached pear, grilled pineapple, and a touch of butter flavors are well balanced and the finish has a touch of waxiness. Very nice!

    March 16, 2019 - 19 months later: beautifully balanced, vibrant, and more complex than we remember. Alas, our last of three. Very enjoyable over four nights.

    February 20, 2019 - Pop and pour. Beautiful yellow gold in the glass. Nose of citrus with just a hint of floral. Picks up a bit of pear and red apple on the palate. I thought this was initially better upon opening and seemed to shut down after an hour or so. Seems a decent value in my opinion.
