Finessed, on the lighter side. Pretty floral aromatics & elegantly textured. Macabeo & Muscat, with some tart citrus notes on the back of the palate. It has that herbal character which is unmistakably Macabeo (Viura) one finds in many white Rioja wines. — 5 days ago
Crisp Willamette Valley Pinot Gris, served with squash lasagna in Toronto — 6 days ago
Just concluded the annual Fall seclusion at our cabin in the Rangeley lakes region of Maine, mobile service up there is mostly non-existent, after several days I am posting again. Notes are somewhat brief, as my focus is relaxing and watching the Common Loons swimming and diving in the cove in front of our camp.
Nose has washed green table grapes, clean cotton tee shirt, candied pineapple and stainless steel.
Palate has smashed crabapples, faint maraschino cherry, (minor) green melon and present but fading acidity. This bottle is in decline, but I still enjoy it more than the 2016. — a month ago
