    December 20, 2015 - Very very good indeed. I've had many tasting of Klein, but I think this was the most enjoyable, perhaps because I've always had a little too young before. They have been great when younger, but this showing really proves its worth waiting. Richer in colour and intensity with serious length and complexity. If your reading this you probably know what it tastes like, so I'll spare you, suffice to say keep it as long as you can!

    April 24, 2015 - Friday Night Double Blind Mondo $100+ (Bin 75): Dark amber gold; honey, botrytis, orange marmalade, pineapple, super aromatic varietal- Gewurz or Muscat; sweet palate, syrupy, good acid in back for lift, honey, white raisin, peach, apricot, definitely a dessert wine; very good, could hold its own against some great dessert wines.

    January 1, 2015 - VdC great again, typical notes as dried and candied fruits (apricots, figs, dates), honey, nuts, fresh crispy acidity, good integrated alcohol, beginning to go to the peak, at least 15-20 years ahead, potential to 95-96 (50+5+13+17-18+9-10)

    August 12, 2014 - tyical notes like dried apricots, peaches, honey, vanilla, tropical fruits, fig, dark roasted hazelnuts and butterscotch, in some way spicy, very multi-faceted, close to perfect balanced acidity and sweetness like D'Yquem, I think now starting to be at its best, but long living for the next 20 years

    December 15, 2013 - Dinner at Woodfire Grill (Buckhead, GA): Corked. This would have been my first Constance...damn.
