A medium gold color with lively effervescence. A rush of tiny bubbles immediately. This smells simply delicious after a bit of time and air. Baked apples and fresh brioche up front with a nice of touch of spice. Yellow fruits are prevalent here along with moist rocks and sea air. There’s this honey element that is truly excellent which tops it all off.
I know, I know it’s too young. You can’t open it yet, it’d be a crime. But sometimes you just have to. And it’s so good. So focused, so fresh, so substantial. A beautiful woman wearing a sexy evening gown. Racy acidity with a superb streak of minerality. This is indeed young and not what it will be in the future but the bones are obviously very good.
Thrilling on the tongue with a dash of electricity. Vivacious and energetic, it’s more than a bit luxurious and resplendent. The palate follows the nose closely but with more pronounced fruits and dried herbs. A beautiful, beautiful wine and one I can’t wait to taste years down the road. — 18 days ago
Very interesting and complex wine. Nose is cherry, tobacco and bbq smoke. Texture and mouthfeel is absolutely lovely - so smooth. Cherry up front, with some cassis and black fruit following, tobacco, damp earth, smoky, red licorice, hint of mint?, lots going on here. Really quite nice. Medium plus finish. — 17 days ago
Gorgeous color of deep purple, without variation, earthy nose of mushroom-loam, grilled duck breast, black cherry both dried and ripe, crushed violets, brown sugar and brown bread. Round and supple mouthfeel of red cherry and bing cherry, shows ample cedar and cigar notes, oak and tart raspberry, cracked black pepper, rose petal and finally winds into a smoky graphite point that will undoubtedly blossom over the next decade.
