I think the yearly naming convention has a rustic charm about it, kind 
of like french wines. We can all sit down one day and have a big 
discussion which year was the best vintage. Reminisce about the more 
intense full-bodied flavour of the second batch of 2009, which is lovely 
in small sips, but can go a bit awry when large gulps are involved... or 
the effect on the palate of annually increasing Scala overtones; it 
shall be grand!

On a more serious note, +1 for calling it Isabelle 2011.
