"5 of the 13" Chateauneuf grapes. Infinitely drinkable, yet complex. At first I thought it was too forward, but each sip kept convincing me otherwise.

Cloudy and beautiful. Balanced and restrained. Mid toned fruit and lively spice. Amazingly understated for what it delivers.

Good clean serious fun, it's got the depth and complexity weightless power that shines through. Delightful.

Way too early. Doesn't have the layers or complexity it will with time, but it's already fun, and full of crunchy, restrained red fruit.

Better the second day. Herbal red fruit. A touch weedy. Terrific bright acidity.

Too soon, and not showing its true self. Fine, but not as expressive add it should/will be. Check back in a couple years.
