    October 14, 2018 - Orange appearance. Thick sweet orange aroma and orange and apricot taste. A little bite finish at first which quickly dissipated.

    December 25, 2017 - Surprisingly strong, the concentrated, sweet, ripe and overripe, juicy pineapple, apricot, orange marmalade and assorted tropical fruits offer that majestic blend of acidity and honeyed, caramel sweetness.

    December 2, 2017 - Heritage Blind Tasting in Vegas (Jean-Georges Restaurant, Aria Hotel Las Vegas): Medium dark gold color; great nose on this, caramelized notes, baked apricot, pie drippings with old pineapple, petrol, bunch of stuff but I didn't take notes. Very good structure, not flabby, a bit of lift in there, complex, nicely balanced. This is how I like my Sauternes! Old with complexity and balance! So nice. 93-94. Heritage Auction Blind Tasting Vegas--dinner wines.

    April 27, 2017 - From 375, beautiful, smooth nice orange zest and apricot with spice and good focus. Seems to be in a very good place. Not too sweet but elegant and sporting a nice finish. A nice end to a BDay celebration with several friends.
