    November 20, 2011 - Pale gold color. Citrus, baked apples, unripe pears and a hint of yeasty breadiness. Palate with lemon/lime, granny smith apples dominating from beginning to end. Finishes with a grapefruit bitterness intermingling with citrus and apples. A bit hot on the finish. Nice acids with some good weight. But somewhat simple and one note. Nice quaffer that went well with goat cheese mushroom cous cous with sund dried tomatoes. 13% abv.

    January 20, 2011 - My final bottle of what has been a truly remarkable wine over the past 5 years. Brilliant rich golden color. Nose has faded since my last tasting two years ago, but still with honey and wild flower aromas. Palate shows less fruit and is more floral dominated with a significant increase in acidity. Medium-long finish. Definitely showing more of a tokaji character now than ever before. When first released it might have been hard to associate this with tokaji, but now the connection is unmistakable. Still quite good, but unquestionably starting to fade – drink any remaining bottles now.

    August 27, 2009 - This wine surprised me with it's honeysickle and citrus notes. The sweet tokaji flavors are there without the sweetness. When I had this before there was a lot of grass and lemons to it, but the floral componants have really stepped up.

    January 21, 2009 - Great deep golden color. An exciting floral and citrus nose. Tastes of lime, lemon, and peach. Medium-length finish which concentrates on the citrus acidity.
