When you tell your wife to open anything I’ll be back from the store. She picks the inaugural vintage of a 7 year vertical you have been collecting. And it’s the last bottle. PS she usually hates this wine. Shocked and saddened that it was the last but so stoked to be drinking it tonight!!! Cheers! — 4 days ago
Palomino harvested from Carrascal vineyard in four passes during the season. Grapes exposed to sun for approx. 4￼ hrs to elevate sugars, no fortification necessary. Vintages prob-2013-2017 Saca iv.
N: Old wooden boats, tinned peaches, iodine, the sea baby!, Hazelnuts,Orange and lemon rinds, wax, petroleum, …
P:Oranges and peaches, So delicate, some wood, tactility seductive, Viscous yet refreshing.preserved citrus. The “ inner mouth energy” is tremendous.
Not overly oxidative, I could go on.

This is good stuff. Pretty much textbook Gruner. If you like your Gruner lean and tart, you’d probably like this. — 18 days ago
