With significantly lower yields in 2017 this is a hard to get item. Gorgeous, subtle and super pure nose. Cranberry, pomegranate, so clean, bing cherries that are so so bright. Glorious spice. So so glorious. Like a feather it is just the purest, sweetest, most elegant, nimble like Red Rieslingesque Spätburgunder ive ever had from Jewel. Amazing freshness, drive and energy and also a firm mineral backbone and core. So delicate and nimble. Wonderful purity. The mineral red fruited sweetness is hey gorgeous. Tannins are delicate but there. I see this aging very well for 6-8 years. Gorgeous wine.

Brambly beautiful nose. Big florals, big berry, big cherry, all being damson and brambly. Palate is lithe and elegant with beautiful fruit and such elegant tannins and wonderful freshness and purity. Terrific inner mouth aromas, superb.

Nose has diffuse florals, freshly cut cherry, pint of raspberries... initially this doesn't seem as fragrant/approachable as the 2015, likely more decant time is needed.

Palate has mashed raspberry/strawberry/blackberry, moist earth, wet granite, perfect (medium) acidity and a very long finish.

Looking ahead to this bottles evolution over the next 24hr as it seems lightly closed up tonight. Notes will be updated.

24hr Update: Nose is approaching the Pinot perfume qualities of the 2015, but lacking the body of that vintage.

Gorgeous nose. Spice, balsam, Damp earth, pine needle, raspberry and strawberry fruit. So aromatic. Layered and precise aromas. Excellent aromatic showing. Palate is ripe and juicy with wonderful balancing acidity and freshness. Lovely earthy sweetness and nice persistence. Gossamer like.

Holy F! This is madness in a glass, makes me think Burgundy immediately, raspberry with wet earth and lightly smokey on initial approach. I could just smell this all night and not even have to take a sip to be overly satisfied. Mashed raspberry/strawberry finish extends for minutes, this hit the decanter about an hour ago, I can't even imagine where this will be in a few more hours. It's fruit perfume. I think this is easily on par with the similarly priced Enderle & Moll (Liaison), if not almost better!

For some reason I really like her reds. This needs a couple of years in the bottle unlike the 15 which was great 👍 right away. Too young I expect this will be beautiful. Patience needed. Lots of acid. Forest floor dark fruit and a hint of sage.

Delicious! While framed by brisk acidity and earthy tannins, it’s the raspberry/strawberry intensity that gets my vote here. Will probably age well thru 2030 but difficult to judge wines without track record. Love the herbaceous twist too.

Nose has spatburgunder spice and pepper. Palate is crazy juicy fruit. Almost a hint of spice/licorice. Delicious fruit. Bought from Fass selections
