A brilliant clarity of expression. A velvety softness envelopes a wiry skeleton. This shit tastes good. It'll get better.

Tart cherries. Lean, bit green. Grippy tannins. Needs time.

Thanks Aubert and Pamela for reminding us that life is fabulous and a little bit of patience (in the cellar anyway) is often richly rewarded!

This was remarkably forward and open when it came in a few months ago, but judging by this bottle it has shut down for a while.

When I really like a wine I vacillate between seriousness and silliness. Here I'll do both: old Pinot Fin clone, pure red berry fruit, aromatic, super fine tannins; OMFG BUY AS MUCH AS YOU CAN!!!
