    June 9, 2013 - another excellent showing. herbal and honeyed aromas, very fresh and pure, complex. Balanced and lush on the palate but with excellent acidity. Good with sea bass and spring vegetables, but would have been better with stronger dishes like grilled squid or garlic and octopus, things like that. Delicious and I wish I had more.

    March 2, 2012 - Not much enjoyment out of this one. Nose is very strong with heavy nuttiness and wet wood with some petrol minerality. Full bodied palate with a cloying sweet taste like overripe peach (is it the alcohol?). Heavy wine past its best.

    December 26, 2011 - fantastic showing for this excellent wine. We decanted a couple hours before drinking, but you could tell immediately - clear and fresh aromas, vibrant. The wine has a unique aromatic profile, and now that it is maturing, it is very articulate and detailed. For me the primary aroma is pumice - the volcanic rock. There is citrus fruit too, something floral, a Burgundian barrel-influenced richness of sweetness, and all infused with this lovely slightly smoky savory-ness. Great freshness and acidity on the palate, balanced, expressive. Simply delicious wine, and seems like its only beginning to grow into itself.

    July 27, 2010 - Santorini Wine Dinner: oak, smoke, pumice, preserved lemons - and this is all on day 3. the wine is balanced and focused , energetic, very clean on the palate, with sea spray hints. the alcohol sometimes juts out a bit though. will the oak integrate over time? if so, the wine could be great.
