This is amazing. A rush of rock pool, salinity, yellow fruit, soft citrus on the nose. Loads of slatey mineral and rock. On the palate this expands and expands. It’s just amazing how this is so complex but restrained and in place. Just wow.

Tasted blind. Light straw gold color. Young and vibrant in the glass. Notes of white stone, chalk, honey and clay. Early on it's thin and shows as very young. Was told this had 90 min of air and i guessed 2000 Rav MdT. But with more the wine improves dramatically over 3 hours... every attribute improved and expanded. Can't wait to try again this in 5 yrs when I'm sure it will be even better.

Very nice but lacking great acid structure. Nice nose and palate and finish but a bit flabby

Debate about this one. Hint of TCA on the nose that seems to come and go. Nose is surprisingly reticent but the palate is great. Hard to know. Clearly excellent wine underneath. Hedging on the score as I’m confused.... 4 hours later. This is NOT corked... all wrong. Now, this is a beautifully balanced. What happened? Not sure, but this is a beautiful wine. Somewhere between the 01 and 05 in style. Superb
