Whew came swimmin’ out this bouquet cause it is rich and enriching, cedar, clove, baking spices, forest floor, the spice of fresh velvet.
Only 16 cases were made and the little wine shop on Jones Street, Jones Street Wine, was nice enough to let me get my hands on one of their last bottles (1 of 5).

Mouthwateringly good. Nice balance of spice and acid to wake up the buds. Little to no bitterness. Punchy fruit punches through. And that wonderful clove essence throughout.
Few wines make me write longer notes, but when I find one that does, I can’t seem to stop talking about them.

Richly textured with predominately ripe fruits and oak notes at this young age, but in a way that somehow conveys a sense of understated elegance. Enough acidity to carry the medium to full body.
My first of this iconic Chard from down under. And it did not disappoint.

The most Burgundian Nebbiolo I’ve come across. Stunning nose. Rustic barnyard notes, iron, cherry, kirsch, tobacco, and nutmeg. Lifted, perfumed, yet slightly funky. Dry, but not Barolo dry. Acidity adds vibrancy and balance. Minerality, slightly underripe red fruit. Cranberry and chalk. Lingers on the finish. So good. — a year ago
Great black fruit. Black pepper. Ripe and slight underripe. 36th bday wine. Violet tar tabaco. Charred earth. — a year ago
