Lovely aromatic with red fruit, pomegranate, some cassis and an undertone of dark, moist earth. A hint of pencil shavings, too.
On the palate this is medium bodied, cool, fresh & juicy, the tannins adding a nice, firm frame. Nice interplay between the sweet & sour red fruit and savoury undertones. Long silky finish with a touch of mint & sage.
Fresher & cooler than 2016, but consistently v. good & brilliant value for a Bordeaux blend! Yum! — 16 days ago
Blend of blend of 60% Carricante, 25% Catarratto, 10% Grecanico and 5% Minnella, aged in French oak for 10 months. Pale lemon with aromas of stone and citrus fruits adding honeysuckle blossom. On the palate flavors of apple, apricot and lemon citrus with creamy vanilla wrapped in generous acidity, long finish ending with wet stone minerality. Nice! — 18 days ago
Light salmon color with aromas of ripe fruits, floral and citrus notes. On the palate flavors of peach and strawberry with lemon citrus, floral and herb notes. Medium dry finish, soft tannins ending with fruit and herb mineral notes. Drink now while it’s fresh. — 18 days ago
Fantastic. Rustic, subtle fruit, earthy somewhat balanced red. Softer texture is what makes it less balanced. But still great. — 6 days ago
Had at Obelisk. Absolutely delicious. So complex. $100 at restaurant — a month ago
All the intense minerality you get from this truly volcanic site. Only problem - way too early to drink, even opened a day earlier. — 3 months ago
