Toasty with a dominant note of membrillo paste channels from the nose to the palate. Really nice firm backbone with moderate length.

Anniversary year bubbles for the patio. Lovely and bright. Not particularly intense or elegant, but fun.

Back in the saddle again. What a great way to jump back into tasting mode. Off dry with some nice apple-pear fruits. Plays well with everything.

A bit underwhelmed on this one, almost a touch bitter a bit lacking on the layers it should have too
