Nose is tropical flowers. Gorgeous.
Palate is a bit recalcitrant at this point. Balanced and elegant. Perfect hint of honey. Very mineral. Great acidity. Mouthfeel gives you density but not the flavor as much.
I’d give this a couple of years for optimal drinking. It’s very good now but will be better.

Shockingly open from the first pour. Would have thought it would need a great deal of time in the decanter before it unfurled but this was showing beautiful right away. Super expressive nose of violets, black olive, red fruit, iron and crushed stones. The palate is deep and concentrated with lovely texture that’s complimented with fresh acidity. Finishes long, lifted and balanced. This was fantastic with the beet course as they had a matching ‘meatiness’ to them. Love these wines. — 23 days ago
All I can say is wow! I opened this bottle with zero expectations, took a sip and just started laughing because of how delicious it was. Nose is so quirky and expressive as soon as you pour a glass. Peaches, kiwi, welches white grape juice, golden raisins, butterscotch, pineapple, mango, tropical bubblegum... “confectionary psychedelia” are the words that came to mind. A subtle sweetness teases the mid-palate but then resolves to a tart and mineral finish. Which is awesome and opposite the honeyed, cloying finish I’ve come to fear in some Rhone whites. I’d say with this bottle I’m well on my way to being a convert.
Can’t for the life of me explain the richness and elegance at this price point. Genius stuff @Lyle Fass — 16 days ago
Quite a rich lemon in colour. Overall the aromatics are more delicate for the sometimes unctuous varieties of Marsanne and Roussanne. Lovely aromatics of pear, honeysuckle and white flowers. The following night the palate was a little more luscious with notes of quince with low acid. A lovely wine. — 22 days ago
