See previous note about Fermoy being served at the Danish Royal Wedding. A herbaceous Margaret River Cabernet with geranium, menthol and some green notes on the nose. Black currant, cassis - trace of chocolate on the palate. After an hour in the decanter it was drinking at its peak. Resolved tannins. — 19 hours ago
Cloudy but vibrant lemon-gold hue, with intense and intriguing notes of brûléed pineapple, marzipan, baked yellow apple, lemon custard, crème puff, lily of the valley, geranium, yellow peach, mirabelle plum, and sourdough.
Ultra-fine, creamy mousse and tart, with searing acidity to balance the rich texture. Like biting into the perfect not-quite-ripe yellow plum. Some very pleasant autolytic character.
Very likely my favorite California sparkling wine I’ve ever tasted. — a month ago

The 2019 Pecorino is a more elegant and savory expression of the variety, wafting up notes of green melon, geranium, hints of citrus and spring flowers. It’s silky upon entry, contrasted by bright acidity and tart orchard fruits, yet also with a cooling hint of fresh mint. This tapers off crunchy and nervous in feel, with cheek-puckering freshness and salty minerality. Enjoy the 2019 today for its pretty personality or through short-term cellaring. I must admit to finding its fragile personality quite appealing, and it’s such a contrast to most of the Pecorino coming out of the region today. (Eric Guido, Vinous, April 2021)

I wanted to retire from Delectable. But then this comes along. The wine rocks it’s stupid cheap. World class Pinot for little money again by E&M. The 18th are awesome. Perfumed nose of roses and geranium. Very earthy. Tart. Cloves on the back palate. Hint of pine needles. Orange peel. For the fruit I am thinking mostly black currants. Excellent to contemplate over and forget about the 🦠. — 3 months ago
Stunningly beautiful! Jason focuses on natural wines and the purity/precision is evident. The mouthfeel is it hallmark. Cross between a VA Oaked Viognier and a stainless steel lees stirred ChArd. Apricot/lime/almond/kiwi/geranium all merge into a Somm Super Slayer table pairing white. 100% Roussane. From Ashby Gap/ East facing Blue Ridge. ￼ — 9 days ago

Mid to deep crimson in colour. Notes of black olive, geranium, red capsicum (peppers). Very dusty and herbaceous. More savoury than fruit driven. Next one in a year. Definitely the most lavish cellar door in Margaret River and a must visit if you are in the District. — 4 months ago
