    February 16, 2020 - Coop's. Bill commented on vanilla and fresh fig, I picked up a bit of cream soda and hay under the flor. Drinking spectacularly well now.

    January 29, 2020 - Such intriguing nose! Vanilla, hazelnuts, toasted or browned butter, salty sea breeeze, apricots and other fruit aromas. Oxidative style but just the right amount. Great acidity to balance. I can see why some would be put off by this rich and powerful wine full of character but I just love it. Would probably not done so 10 years ago. Nose (96) more impressive than mouth (93).

    December 26, 2019 - Piercing lemon acidity, toasty vanilla and coconut. Some oxidative notes (eg. dried Chinese mushrooms, dry sheer).
    Wonderful length and balance.
