Lovely fruit on the nose controlled fruit and sharp minerality on the palate. Some green apple skin. Super well made. Rocky finish. Very good.
As this opens just wonderfully rich like very good champagne can be. Really persistent. Zingy acids balance it out. — 16 days ago
Sweet toffee and raisins with a lingering nuttiness, and a nice lighter body compared with my normal Pedro Ximenez Sherry. Yum! Bring on the Thanksgiving desserts! — 19 days ago
You can taste Willamette in this one. Earthy and rich with some earth metals. Delicious. — 13 days ago
This is an example of a wine that is at the peak of its power. Total balance and unbelievable beauty. Hard to believe it is 16yrs old.
Jumps from the glass showing mulberries, baked black cherries, plum, herbs de Provence, hint of smoked meat and cherry-vanilla pipe tobacco. The palate shows a rich yet restrained wine with licorice, leather, muddled red and black fruits, espresso, cocoa dusted dates and cherry smoked wood. Integrated finish that is gorgeous and smooth. So complex. A stunner. Can be enjoyed at pop and pour but I re-corked and had the second half about 3hrs later and it was truly marvelous.
This could possibly improve a point or two over the next 1-3yrs. My thanks to @David T for introducing this to me and helping me get a bottle. Superb. — 9 hours ago
