Very smooth and easy drinking. — 5 months ago
And now for a golden oldie! Borders on baked golden apple, poire William notes, green apple slices, and even green apple hard candy. Green pear in a pineapple wash, orange bread, pear tart, dinner roll with orange marmalade. Half-dried lemon juices spiral down pile of acid and minerality. Shows it’s age in all other ways, but acid remains unbroken. Baked crab apple, radish fringe, baked grapefruit but just browned, sour mandarins, lemon and lime piths pull it back to its sinew. Really amazing wine. Endless citrus finish.

This totally encapsulates my feelings today, my sadness over the loss of a great icon. Tobacco, darkness, rough and tumble weathered psyche. This wine brings you that much closer to feeling that death spiral, though you realize your biological levity will intervene. Others aren’t so lucky. This wine is a toast to someone who could not conquer darkness himself, but nurtured his inner darkness to bend the rest of us toward the light. May you finally feel at home, restless wanderer. — 5 years ago
Superb. Smooth, a cornucopia of flavors, a spiral of sensory delight. Layers of deliciousness swirl and open over a long finish. — 3 years ago
