This is rad! I do not get the pleasure to taste this producer that often but this is singing perfect amount of ripeness, slight green, and honestly even the Brett is charming. delicious. Lives up to the name, I'm pumped

Venison burger night. First time tasting this wine since release. Elegant and pretty, but softer than I recall.

Round, mineral and worthy of the hype. If not the price.

A little light on the acid and the fruit is a touch murky but still a beautiful wine!

Seems to be in a closed phase. Chalky pencil and rasberry, with classic pepper notes. I have to say, I expected more energy given the vintage and pedigree. Very good but not great.

2010. Crazy green forest scents of spruce, moss, green peppercorn, 'deet' and undergrowth, this is ridiculously complex. Cabernet Franc on steroids!
