Some oxidation. Bruised apples. Lots of co2. Good richness. I like it. I knew that MA had potential for good things. #eastcoastlove

Intense aromas of apples and brioche. (Like a bakery full of apple pies). Yeasty apples on the pallet. Creamy texture and very effervescent. Thirst Quencher! Great (and goes down easy) on a Summer Day!

Last one with Geoff was rather oxidized but this one is spot on. Like a vintage Champagne (ok stated like SG) and actually went very well with hot pot for year of the Pig. 2/5/19. Still good day after. A bargain.

Dinner with Steve/Katy with grilled salmon and steak tips. More yeasty and oxidative than remembered when first tasted at V Cafe but paired well with the Asian spiced grilled meats. What a value at discounted $18 at Julio's.
