Tasted blind. From magnum. Medium gold color, with viscous weight in the glass. Notes of orchard fruits, cinnamon, peach, lemon, some stone. Rich and round in the mouth. Super ripe. Some heat. Great wine. The magnum format surely assisted with how well it showed tonight.

Light to medium gold. Delicate fruit forward nose. Sweet lemon fruit matched against fine grained acidity. Notes of Meyer lemon, stones, soil and apricot. Like the others next to it this grew in power and acidity with more air. Was singing late into the evening. (Bday dinner 6/13)

Complex nose. Aged but not premox. Steely, lemon, caramelized ginger. Leaner than expected.

Light gold. Nice silky nose w lemon, creme, white stone, and soil. In the mouth it's a huge wine with a velvet lengthy finish. Needs more time

Still tightly laced, but after a hour or so decant it began to blossom. #burgundy

Light lemon gold. Lemon curd and river stone in the nose. Strong acidity but nice round finish. No signs of premox. Really good

Flat and boring. At best, we caught this wine in a weird stage.

Somewhat reticent nose. Chubby. Very good, was just expecting better.
