    September 26, 2020 - Aged Marsanne is my jam. Alluring nose. Unctuous mouthfeel. Complexity in spades. Long finish.

    August 15, 2020 - Another favorite white. Decanted and aerated for two hours then drank over an hour. Deep golden color, very dense wine. Nose open of honeysuckle, beeswax, crushed stones, marzipan, lemon tart but make no mistake the wine has no sweetness and can pair with the juiciest piece of red meat. However we had it with creamy salmon truffle pasta and the wine’s buttery and long finish went well. Very powerful wine and very complex. A wine to follow over many years to come just to see its evolution is an experience in itself. The gun flint nose is gone as I’ve seen the last few years. Let’s see what happens in 3 to 5 years.

    July 30, 2020 - Decanted an hour then poured back in bottle. This wine is amazing. Oxidative notes. Dense and a massive body. Weighty on the pallet. Closed a little on the nose and needed time to open. Perfect balance and acidity. Fresh with one of the longer finishes I have encountered in a white. Goes for minutes literally. This will keep another 20 years I imagine. Drink 2025-2045. But who knows. Its a freaky good wine.

    May 6, 2020 - Outstanding and drinking well although has another 10 to 20 years of potential. Golden yellow color, viscous wine. Decanted and drank over 2 hours. See previous notes but the power combined with complexity and subtlety I have rarely seen in a white.

    April 27, 2020 - Golden, hints of raisin. Improved from prior tasting. Big and can cut through and compliment a fatty fish dish.
