    May 27, 2018 - Very nice. Just starting to show some age but no oxidation and still drinking well. Beautiful nose of butterscotch, grapefruit and ripe pear. Tart mouthfeel. The oak has faded (a plus?) and the slightly shorter finish suggests it time to drink.....but delicious!

    November 11, 2017 - While definitely on the downslope, it’s still interesting for its bold fruit and honeysuckle flavors, decent acidity and oak. Gets tiring after a while, though.

    August 25, 2016 - Wow! what a wine. Mature but will continue to become richer and more complex. This is a big full bodied white. it is rich with glycerin and nuanced oaky notes. on the notes there is a classic lemon and honey lead with quite a sweet undertow.
    The inw is not overly heavy but is on the rish side Good balance overall, acidity and oaky tannins creating a very special wine. Enjoy now or wait for it to become even richer and more complex.
