This needs time to breathe as alcohol volume is high and was at first very acidic in mouth. Once it’s decanted, cooled for 90 minutes it relaxed. Opening with intense Maraschino Cherry flavour, a hint of pencil lead hyphenated the heat of menthol and welcomes a strawberry finish still heated by eucalyptus that fills both nose and mouth.
Acidity reduced to underlying saline in the background and thickness in mouth
The menthol is a bit overpowering for Turkey dinner.🍷 — 4 days ago
Another @David L proposal, which is excellent - thank you. It has many similarities with a white Rhône, but I find it more accessible and appealing. The Viognier in the blend takes center stage, while the Grenache brings the texture and stone fruits. Would love to taste this 5 years from now, but it’s already gulpable.

What an amazing wine considering it’s youth! On the nose there are great notes of black cherry and a slight hint of smoke. The palette bring this wine into a completely different level. Up front the fruit is is amazing mid palette the milk chocolate begins to appear and the win finishes with a great balance of cherry and chocolate!!! If you can cellar this beauty ￼ — 5 days ago
