So good. Nose of citrus pith, tree bark, deep minerality. Floral so aromatic. Amazingly complex. Just stunning. Kumquat. Keeps opening and opening. Concentrated, textured and super elegant. So fine and refined. Long. Amazingly pure. So delineated and fine. Superb blend of citrus fruits and complex minerality. Really great freshness and piquant acidity. Terrific depth and length. Has great crystalline structure. Seems the 17’s are opening once again. — 7 days ago
In a great place. This shows the glory of 2015. Smokey meats, olive and granite on the nose. Palate is complex right now and so pure, energetic and fresh. Terrific integration of fruit, tannins, granite, acid. Just so long as well. Black fruits bursting in your mouth slathered in granite. Wow this is long. Really long. Yup. A 9.4. — a month ago
Nose has dried apricots, very over-ripe nectarine, lemon peel, crushed slate, peach pit and wet vinyl curtain.
Palate has orange zest, ripe peach, ripe nectarine, nectarine skin, warmed lemon, green apple peel, fresh green herbal notes but with a light sweetness. Amazing wine, great acidity with very extended finish; Wow!
Decanted 6H. Expect this to drink amazingly 2025-2035+.
6D Update: Nose has honey drizzle over ripe apricot. Palate has dried orange peel, ripe peach, dried peach, green herbal note persists but coupled with dried orange. — 6 days ago

short breaths will engulf you in all things lime: juice, zest, aid, ice ~ but then deeper breaths allow a spectrum including Granny Smith and Golden Delicious, tonic, minerals, blossoms, rainbow sherbet and orange marmalade resting atop shortbread
it’s like a mix of citrus juices with peach and mango nectar ~ simultaneously sharp acidity and minerality with a nearly creamy sensation ~ perplexing yet ultimately enjoyable — 2 days ago
Underripe melon, honeysuckle, cardamom, and saline. Lightly oxidized. Juicy, bordering on sweet. — 2 days ago
Distinctive, toasty, nutty oxidative style with struck match and mineral rock for days. Hint of citrus for good measure. Excellent. — a day ago
