    April 16, 2018 - Black crud under foil. Cork broke in half on way out. More sherry-like than nutty.

    March 24, 2018 - Perfect cork. Dark gold in glass, but not amber. Palate is light bodied with integrated acidity keeping this wine fresh and lively, balanced and elegant. Very slight sherry on finish. Might have been better five+ years ago, but still a terrific wine.

    September 28, 2016 - Jesper was blown away by this wine. Fully mature, this shows so much complexity that one keeps coming back to the glass. Honeyed fruit, nuts, great acidity, spicy, everything one wants in a mature wine.

    February 7, 2015 - Dark golden colored, almost amber. Under the oxidative sherrysh nuttiness, lies rich nectarine flesh, which is surprisingly young and energetic for its age. Focused acidic tension. Neutral dry chardonnay weight is converted into sublime clear persistence, keeping exact balance with its aged depth. For other aspects which I failed to capture in this note, RHIT's tasting note dated 4 years ago still holds. Just beyond words.

    November 1, 2013 - You gotta work with it, but out of Zalto... rich, savory, salty, like your favorite baseball team winning the pennant as you sit behind first base eating roasted peanuts. The old gal new what she was doing. An old timer, but insanely good. I just want to be with this thing.
