One of my favorite wines that tariffs have destroyed. Was $33 or so before and now almost $50. These damn things need to go away. Gorgeous deep minerals on the nose. So clean and so pure. Some lime zest but huge minerals out of the gates. Palate is so sleek, so refined and hugely exceedingly mineral. Terrific freshness and energy. Awesome texture and depth. Icing on cake texture that is very substantial. Amazing depth that expresses itself as a function of mineralIty. Terrific concentration and intensity. Long, refined and exceedingly mineral finish. Leaves your mouth watering. Zero fat. All minerals and echoes of fruit.
