    September 21, 2018 - Holding on to life, and its remaining fruity tightly, the butterscotch, flowers, orange citrus peel, pear and lemon notes are strong. The fruit is still sweet, and I like the freshness, that being said, this is already 20 years of age, so it is time to drink it, if you have any.

    December 12, 2010 - Medium golden yellow color. Somewhat waxy nose with some wheat and ripe pear notes on the nose. The palate has some richness but is not too overbearing. really nice balance.

    March 18, 2010 - I think this is on the decline. Nose is predominantly toasted oak, a little citrus coming through and a touch of nutmeg. Butterscotch and vanilla dominate the palate. Drink up.

    November 12, 2009 - Jen's Birthday (Lake Bluff, IL): Lemon custard and lime peel on the nose with some toasty wood notes and wet stone. Great on the palate; very fruit forward with the same lemon custard. Some nice spice on the backend with great acidity.

    November 12, 2009 - Jen's birthday (Inovasi; Lake Bluff, IL): Big, opulent, slightly smokey wine. Bright, waxy flavors - some honeyed more mature notes. Keep well in check. Some alcohol evident. Very nice.
