Pale in initial pour, gains quite a bit of color w air. On the savory side for domestic PN, but not w cola or oak scents, more soil inflected. Medium plus bodied, robust but balanced alcohol and long finish. This should continue to improve in bottle. Paired w grilled salmon and delicata squash. — 13 days ago
Initially very shy in the nose, when straight from the fridge. With air and warming up it offers nettle, poblano and chive aromas. Crisp, high acid style was a good foil to pasta with favas, bacon, evoo, mint and parmesean. — 2 months ago
Best bottle I've cracked in some time. Even the less savvy wine drinkers at dinner commented on its complexity and ability to pair w food. I did not decant or let it breathe, just pop and pour. Delicious w Olde Salt oysters from the Chesapeake Bay. — 2 months ago

Pleasantly fizzy. Orchard fruits on the nose, mostly apples. Soft entry. Not very complex, but clean and easy to drink. — 13 days ago
Very solid. Needs air Classic Raul style, feels like some stem inclusion, so peppery and lots of red fruits. Super classic and should age well, though just medium bodied. — 2 months ago
