    August 15, 2016 - Subsequent notes on this wine from over two years ago. Medium-light golden yellow in color. Forward, attractive & aromatic nose of developed & complex ripe fruit aromas of apples, pears, citrus notes of lemons/limes & stone fruits with overtones of floral notes of honeysuckle & minerals, flinty, wet stones, almonds, some butterscotch, spices, some toasty oak & a hint of vanilla in the background. Medium bodied with a good concentration of well balanced & smooth textured, developed & complex, crisp, ripe flavors of apples, grapefruit & citrus of lemons/limes with some butterscotch, spices, stony, minerals, toasty oak & a touch of vanilla. Long lingering finish. Drinks quite well at present & may be at its peak of development, so drink up. It has aged quite well.

    February 14, 2016 - full mouthfeeling, expressive nose. this wine is about power in a balanced way. nose is full of brown butter, almond, tropical fruits ( pineapple), brioche, honeyed citrus and spices. the taste is viscous, oaky, pretty aligned with the nose and a spicy finish. overall very good, maybe a bit too much (oak and spices)for my personal taste. the quakity is there, rather a question of style.

    January 31, 2016 - Some funk on the nose; honey, vanilla, hazelnut; truly outstanding chard.

    January 11, 2016 - yup on the nut and vanilla; sweet white peach; smooth mouth feel; more vanilla than i prefer, but well integrated, and the fruit and texture stand up to the oak.

    October 11, 2015 - Darkening golden color, with pear and white fruits on the nose. The palate shows citrus, mineral, and sweet oak notes. A touch of herb adds to the interesting flavors. The finish is clean and compelling.
