Lovely nose, very pure, buttery, mineral, shows warmth of 15 but also shows freshness and depth. Very pure. Explosive fruit.

Aromas of wood freshly cut via table or circular saw, caramelized sugar and radial tire - things were looking up. Initial glass was a bit short, which I must say was disappointing after such an auspicious beginning. After a bit of time, she broadened out into an elegant, almost weightless drink. So delicate and pleasant.

Very forward and very concentrated. I think wine would have benefitted from some air, but we were post horseback riding birthday party and needed drink. This was awesome.

Terrific acidity fruit and volume in the mouth. Great length. Wonderful minerality. Amazing wine from humble terroir.

Rocking. Soars past the '12 in quality. Stunning. Dense, long and opulent. Needs 45 minutes.

Even better now that it has been here a while. Super wet earth nose. Lemon curd. Really mineral driven. Palate is beautiful with terrific acidity and powerful concentration. Really intense and finishes distinctly mineral. This is so long. Fantastic.
