Fuller bodied, lots of ripe pineapple, almost grilled pineapple, amazing with Thai curry. Fascinating to try such a rare variety grown here in CA, there is so much potential for our baby industry. — 16 days ago
Purchased at the winery, tasted exactly the same all these years later (was great then), just even more complete and layered, proof that age-worthiness starts with balance and ends with balance. Wonderful when a winemaker you respect is proven right about the virtues of classic wine. — 21 days ago

It's interesting how the work and touch of a master almost always comes through in the wine. There is a confidence in this wine, a strength, a well-thought out perspective. Of course it tasted good too. — 3 months ago
