National sales manager for Grapes of Spain, a Spanish wine importer; but ombibulous when off duty.
Medium gold. Toasty, combination of orchard and white pit fruits. Long, dense and yet fresh. I think the SB and Muscadelle are leading the nose and the Semillon the structure. Too bad this is my last bottle as it was delicious. — 4 days ago
Better than I anticipated and among the better white burgundies I have tasted recently. Creamy orchard fruits, hint of wet stone. Maybe the screwcap was a good thing here. — 9 days ago
Medium ruby/purple. Spicy, red/blue fruit, cola. This seems more new world compared to the Marine Sedimentary bottling.
With air on subsequent days this holds up better but never shows the nerve and ethereal qualities of the other bottling. — 4 days ago
Tasty, clean. Not particularly bracing, or crisp, which character I hope to find in Rioja generally. — 9 days ago
Pale green yellow. Aromas of creamy talc, not as distinctly topical/grassy as previous versions I've had. The acid in this vintage also seems quite soft and lacks the dri e and energy I was hoping to find. Will try another bottle soon, then wait on additional bottles. — a month ago
Medium ruby. Intense, savory, wet stone, red fruited. Savory flavors that play an enegetic/mineral card foremost. Serious new world PN. — 4 days ago
Absolutely delicious. Equally good w BBQ brisket and Mexican food. Minimal tannin and maybe a touch of rs. Not for thinking, just for drinking. — 9 days ago
Medium salmon color. Bright aromas of apricot are the primary focus. Simply perfect with grilled fish and grilled veggies salad (squash, tomato, eggplant, red pepper, fennel). Well balanced and so gulp-able, that my wife even had a second glass. — a month ago
