2015 is so special. Gorgeous nose. Black olives, ripe black berry fruit, almost ooozng, hint of Brett, red fruits as well. Palate is ripe, juicy and large scaled for this normally more nimble St. Joseph. Complex, deep and very concentrated. Impressive purity and structure. Terrific freshness and length. Like many other 15’s this big boy needs 3-4 years but easily the best of 5 vintages I’ve worked with. — 3 days ago
Outstanding value. Lovely nose of cranberry tang, citrus, cherries, a whisper of minerals. So beautiful. Even some nice spice. Palate is wonderfully balanced and tangy with lovely sweet fruit. Mild tannin and lovely purity. Such a value. Juicy and so lithe yet has good crunch. Terrific persistence. — a day ago
@Delectable Wine the wine is “Krover Letterlay Spatlese Trocken**” / thanks.
Wow. Martin’s 2015’s are a force of nature. Slamming nose and so pure. Crystalline. Citrus oil, cream, floral, some faint spices. Gorgeous and airy yet precise and detailed. Juicy and complex with serous mineral driven structure yet tangy sweetness from the perfectly ripe citrus fruits and a sneaky persistence. This is stuffed and barely revealing itself but what it reveals now is still stunningly beautiful. A great wine. — a day ago
