Nose has oak-ey pineapple purée, orange peel, oxidized green apple, dried white florals, orange blossom, wet river rocks and dry sandstone (go figure!).
Palate has warmed lemon slice, lemon zest, orange zest, very mineral-ey water, day old buttered popcorn, lemon pith, toasted barrel and warmed sandstone. Very nice, long finish, wanting another sip...
Decanted 3H, more time, and years appreciated. Future bottles should be 2025+.
Inaugural bottle from an OWC 6-pack my lovely wife surprised me with about a month ago, guess she really knows what I love, aside from her and the fur-kids, it's Chardonnay! — 12 days ago
Nice Burgundy style Bojo, nice red fruit, good acidity, supple tannins yet the wine has balance and some depth, but I think you need to drink up, won’t last that long. 88-89
Beau Bojo de style Bourguignon, fruits rouges, belle acidité, tannins assez souples, un beau vin équilibré. Par contre, je pense qu’il faut boire assez rapidement si on veut apprécier sur le fruit. — 20 days ago
Opens like a Savennières, three hours later it’s creamier and rounder like a lemon Meringue pie. Ripe apricot, honey, beeswax, chive, acacia, lemon, cream Fraiche, lemon pie, stony minerality, richly textured on the palate with the right amount of phenolics and an ultra long and pleasing finish. Such a lovely wine!! Elevated acidity. Medium gold in color. — 2 days ago
Wine has a beautiful medium dark ruby red gaining some brick hue on the border. Has always been taut and muscular and somewhat variable. This bottle oozed with great fruit, spices and flowers, and was truly excellent. Tanins are pronounced but there is enough fruit here to outlast them. Was a great bottle and we thoroughly enjoyed it. — 13 days ago
Mike & Rhonda came up to visit us this past Saturday. Came to support my son on his final swim before heading off to college. He just happened to break the pool record in 50 Breaststroke . They purchased this beauty for dinner. ￼We LOVE you both! -at EddieV’s Tyson’s Corner. ￼@Mike R — 6 days ago
Mostly scarlet in color, translucent and regal. Deep nose. Notes of black cherry, blueberries, dried cranberries, some cool slate stone and some pepper. Rich and long in the mouth. Tannins fully resolved and integrated. Really nice for the vintage. In a great drinking window. — 4 days ago
