Needs at least an hour decant to integrate perfectly at this point (for my admittedly purist palate). Rich fruit minerals and lime on the nose. Wall of flavor on the palate. Huge juicy fruits. Peach. Apricot. Pineapple. Massive acidity and minerals. Gorgeous inner mouths aromatics. Long spicy mineral finish. This producers style is very impactful. Delicious powerful wines. More trumpets than harps. But beautiful trumpets. Bought from Fass Selections. After 90 minutes almost some nuttiness on the nose. Really palate soaking.

On the nose closed. On the palate ... basically an orgy. Ridiculous umame. Savory. Rich. But acidically balanced. If that’s a word. With chicken in cream sauce this would be heaven. Check back in 18 months. The upside on this wine could be very very high. The downside is just really delicious. Ok an hour in this is sick. I mean sick and profound. Internal aromatics are kicking in. Incredible wine. Do not touch for 18 months. Once the nose kicks in this will be a bucket list experience.

Needs a couple of years. Still a hint of wood on the Nose and palate. Definitely has good acidity and nice fruit. Long finish. Try again in 2018. Chavy is a rockstar. Bought from Fass selections.
