I made an analogy tonight of learning about wine and skiing. @DirtyandRowdy is definitely a double black diamond trail. You either love it (like me), feel exhilarated and thrilled. Other people might feel like just slid face first into a tree. One thing is for sure, it's never boring.

Freshly opened and fresh tasting, although it still needs air to really shine. 2nd or 3rd day best according to Rowdy and Lady Rowdy.

Bright and light lemony yellow. Pure semillon aromas with some beeswax. Fresh, sleek texture.; lemon shortbread comes to mind. Long @olmsteadwine

Needs time to open up, but then is great soft and savory Semillon. Where the acidity falls off a bit, the texture picks up the slack. Honeyed ginger citrus tea. Please and thank you.

Incredibly fresh and vibrant considering the skin contact. 11.6% alc. Lemon rind, beeswax, lanolin. Evolved continually with air and as it warmed. Too bad 2014 was the last vintage.

Funky, but fun, like licking concrete that has been wet down with a light apple/pear cider, a wine with good depth and interesting character-med body, high acid, phenolic aromas and flavors. Lynette thought it was too funky but I liked it.
