On PnP pretty closed and tannic, as one would expect. After 30 minutes or so notes of plums, blackberries, pine, cedar, and spices. Looking forward to circling back in an hour or so.
Edit: After relatively sufficient time interacting with air some additional notes began to surface like black truffle, dark chocolate, forest underbrush, clove, and pencil lead. The structure of the wine became more readily apparent as well, exhibiting more balance and finesse. This is a pretty nice second wine. Score up from an 89 to a 91. — a day ago
Inspired by @Jeff D. ’s review last night. Been thinking about this all day. Same thing happening as last time. Pop n pour rating great, 92, but can tell there’s more in the tank. @Jeff D. Saw all of your reviews on many years of this wine. 🧢 off! Club member? All wines this good? — 6 days ago
Tannic at the outset, then smoothed out, dark berries, leather, black pepper, quite lovely. — 7 days ago
Delicious white wine that’s perfect on a warm spring evening. Albariño is a newly discovered favorite - I sense I’ll be drinking this all summer! Crisp and zesty. — a month ago
