A honeyed, aromatic beauty. Grilled pineapple, apricot, and white peach, pain grillé, marzipan, lychee, rose petal, clay pot, acerola cherry, sandalwood. On the palate, it’s viscous with notes of beeswax and lanolin. Salty homemade play-doh. Savory with bright acidity and a long, honeyed finish. This is a wine I really don’t want to end. — 14 days ago
First, I’d like to thank @Severn Goodwin for this excellent example of Rosé in our bottle exchange.
The nose shows leaner, candied & floral fruits of; strawberries, watermelon, black cherries, raspberries, candied rhubarb, amazing powdery chalkiness, fine white to grey volcanics, sea spray with candied pink florals.
The palate is; round, lush, juicy and smartly balanced. Classic French Rosé. Ripe with high viscosity. Candied & floral fruits of; strawberries, watermelon, black cherries, raspberries, tangerine, candied rhubarb, amazing powdery chalkiness, white spice w/ a ginger lean, some of the very best fine white to grey volcanics I’ve had, sea spray with candied pink florals. The acidity is a cool, rushing river. The rich, elegant, well polished, lush finishes with excellent minerality that persists equally with lush fruitiness.

Light golden hue. On the nose this is like spätlese or auslese riesling with combination of apples, lime, wet stone like minerality. Maybe some hints of ripe white currant. On the palate it has just a tick of residual sugar with high acidity keeping things almost austere before fading and giving the sweet fruit to take center stage. Hints of oak giving creamier mouth feel and light sensation of vanilla. Aftertaste turns bit tangy towards end before leaving with very pronounced granny smith apple taste that lingers on for almost a minute. This is very interesting combination where the nose suggest sweeter wine where as the palate is almost completely dry. Very food friendly and worked fabulously with our risotto that had grilled turkey breast, zucchini, herbs and blackhorn mushrooms — 7 days ago

@Delectable, please update this to read: La Pelle olive oil (nv).
This is such a wonderful combination. La Pelle olive oil with some great Italian balsamic vinegar. Paired with NY (Sag Harbor) heirloom tomatoes, and wifey home grown basil.
@Maayan Koschitzky, great job with the oil - love it! Can’t wait for our 2018 cabs to land. — 2 months ago
