Intriguing, beguiling red, ruby barely opaque w/evolving nose of blackberry and plum Gummy Bear, a lift (maybe Alpine?) but def hi-toned note, herby Ricola, devious spice, medicinal & forest floor, floral. Needs food, played well w/duck breast. Med weight & med acidity. As @Lyle Fass mentioned: Gamay-esque, also reminded me of Lagrein. Killed this bottle in no time. Unique & esoteric variety, thanks Lyle — 17 days ago
Fairly intense greco aromatics. More so than other vintages. Starts to blow off with air. Lemon flowers. Lemon oil. The Greco aspect becomes a beautiful integrated element.
As it aerates more like this lemon flower perfume of the gods.
Palate is lovely Almost honeyed a bit. Mineral. Lemony. Lemon essence. Lemon mountain stream. Very clean and elegant.
As this opens elegant richness. Almost a meursaulty finish. As it opens like rich delicious mountain stream. Some apricot in the background.
It’s almost hilarious what a dedicated team can do when quality is the only thing that matters. This is world class wine.

Nose: drop dead gorgeous. Just that fusion perfume thing. Fruit. Mineral. Some age. Wow. As it opens this indescribable prettiness. Gods lemon oil.
Palate is great. Juicy. Almost a spicy mineral. Perfect apricot fruit. Very subtly apricotty. Amazingly delicious. A bit crunchy. Vibrant. Wow. As it opens gods sweet lemon.
