A lovely fresh dynamic nose. Lemons, oyster shells, chalk. This is vital, poised and pure. Very good.

Fully mature and more on the downside now. Still had fruit but lacked the acid and energy of bottles opened in the past. Some pineapple, spice and green apple there.

From the Willi’s Wine Bar list. Straw gold. Nice weight. Sweet fruit forward nose. Notes of apricot and pineapple, tan spice, crushed stone and some sweet quince fruit. Nice fruit in the mouth. Structure builds with air. Chalky in a good way. Really nice but the impact and finish never got big enough to say this was great.

Highlights from an epic dinner last night at No. 9 Park, one of my longtime favorite restaurants in America. This wine was slightly too easy to drink. 😜

Flinty with gunsmoke on the nose. Quite reduced but opens up beautifully into a wonderfully rich (yet still focused) wine. The 2014 is delivering in spades thanks @Nathaniel DiMaggio

Very bright, sharp and dynamic. A lovely chalky and crisp front then long and clear. Hints of lemon. Very good.

Quiet tonight but a very good wine for days beyond. Lime candy. Broad texture.
