    May 3, 2015 - Ed Kurtzman Dinner (Luciana's, Dana Point, CA): Aromas of red apple and pear. This only saw neutral oak and has a creamy mouthfeel. There's a tasty umami / macadamia nut flavor running across palate. Medium plus weight and a long finish. Although only a few bottles remaining on the planet this is going strong and adding secondary elements.

    May 2, 2015 - Ed Kurtzman Comes To Dinner (2015) (Luciana's In Dana Point (South OC)): When I opened this earlier in the day, it felt like it had some toasted oak on it. Yet, Ed told us at the dinner that it saw zero new oak. There was a toasted quality, with moderate glycerine and a zing of lemon and tangy energy. Several hours later at dinner, it does show a nutty quality, with a lime finish and caramel. It's hanging in there, not oxidized but I'd say get it now while it's ready and enjoy it.

    January 10, 2012 - Tasty citrus and grapefruit notes on the nose and palate with buttery oak culminating in a moderately long finish.

    October 27, 2011 - On the nose expectations are made for a huge butter bomb - but no, this is more restrained and elegant than that.
    Vanilla, butter, oak - but in the just the right amounts.
    Going to say these can go for a few more years as this was developing that lovely almond character that makes mature Chard so delicious.
