Sexy and salacious, mega complex, unctuous and rich. Huge levels of spices and florals (think peppery saffron sprinkled with honey dust); deep yellow fruit notes (mango, papaya, maracuja). Orange zest and porcini-nuances.
Magnificent, crazy and unique. Hedonistic and cerebral.
And a point, as well. — 5 months ago
For starters, this is an extraordinary bottle. Golden yellow in color. Floral aroma with white pepper and chalk dust. Complex but balanced palate. Apples, white pepper, stone, flint. With warming a more tropical spectrum emerges. Fruit balanced by ++acid and mineral skeleton. Overall, a terrific job.
Paired with a duck ragu in the Venetian style accented by cinnamon. Missed @Andrew Schirmer and @Nancy Dwight . — 8 months ago
Delicious. Balanced, fruity, minerality, heft. — 4 months ago
