Love. Cabernet franc, not too heavy — 3 years ago
Straight up jasmine perfume. Complex herbal bouquet, juniper and rosemary along with cracker jacks and buttercream icing. Brilliant, deliciously subtle edge of mineral and spice. The @Lyle Fass northern rhone blanc portfolio is stunning and eye opening. This has insane drinkability. Pushing 9.6.
@Delectable Wine this is the Isaline blanc. — 18 days ago
2016. Decanted 3+ hours. Solid low/mid-range CDP with classic purple plum fruit without being too sappy or fleshy. Missing some barnyard funk and a longer finish that could make it more memorable, but well-made and should get more complex over time. $36 at Vine Republic. — 2 years ago
Wow. Awesome. A bit less rich than the 14. Just Great. Screaming mineral and stone fruit on the nose. Fruit and mineral with integrated richness on the palate. So alive. Just jumps at you. Finish is mineral and long. Just sweet minerals that cling to the palate like super glue. Finish is perfect. Like a roller coaster up (fruit) side (mineral) sideways (forward). Perfect balance between big flavors. A wine you can either gulp down or savor over an evening. Wow what a star. Bought from fass selections. ... if I had to do a two word tasting note it would be “Fucking magic”. Vaporizes $100 Côte d’Or. 25 - 35 or so. Wish I bought it all. — 3 years ago
