Wow. What a great wine.
Nose is Spicy and so mineral. A kiss of honey.
Palate has amazing fruit. Grapefruit. Tropical. Silky Mineral. Mountain stream. So elegant. Wow.
Lovely long finish. Grapefruit infused mountain steam. Aged Riesling on the after finish.
As this opens this dense but elegant spicy mineral freak show. A psychotic perfume. Mystical. This muelininess. Omg good.
Has this vibrancy. This truthiness.
Wow. Muellen is god.

Stunning young Equinces. Nose is quite with deep green apple and lovely minerality. But a bit quiet. But the palate is full steam ahead. Rich and just with loads of energy, juiciness and endless depth. This is so complex, dense and structured as well. Amazingly long finish. This is by far the best young Equinces I’ve ever had. Lush yet energetic and incredibly long. — 3 months ago
A pretty pale straw color with little green tinges. Pure elegance from the beginning to the end. Fresh mangoes and delicate peaches on the nose. There’s an undeniable flinty essence here which permeates throughout, never losing steam. Moist stony minerality and dried herbs with just a pinch of elderflower.
It’s so nice when a wine showcases the terroir so clearly and demonstrably. Purely Mosel and very vibrant. Perfectly mature at the moment. Tight acidity and harmonious balance. The palate features some lovely apricot and lemon zest. A little mint on the long finish. — 8 months ago
A pretty, slick and textured savagnin chard blend with honeyed yellow orchard fruit notes and good length and drive. Nice balance of fruit purity and oxidative notes. Picked up steam throughout the evening and worked great with leeks in a cream sauce. — 3 months ago
My first tango with the Brianna grape and I’m impressed. Mineral alpine steam + spring flowers + bruised apple + hay. Not a great QPR but a really beautiful and striking wine. It was consumed way too quickly and easily by a small group of friends with whom I was celebrating. Esoteric in theory but not in taste. — 5 months ago
The only pinot I’ve ever had from Paso Robles, Jack Creek culled out a vineyard in the Templeton Gap that brings in enough cool air at night to make pinot work in a place you’d otherwise would never think should produce pinot. This one has some age on it but is still drinking really well (as opposed to the regular bottling which has lost a fair bit of steam). — a year ago
