A favorite bottle to commemorate some new ink. Always love LF, as this is a chard that definitely grows and progresses as it opens up and warms up in the glass. Beautiful notes of iris, candied pineapple, melon, toasted walnuts, and saline minerality on the nose. Gorgeous texture and purity of fruit.. bruised apple, Meyer lemon, papaya, and chalky minerals. Bright zingy acidity on the backend, but not as lean as something like Ceritas or Failla - a bit more baby fat and textural complexity on this bottle that keeps you coming back for more. A perfect hybrid of styles by Jeff Nelson and co. Paired with a creamy bow tie pasta with dried tomatoes and a spring salad.

Another Liquid Farm firing on all cylinders!! Fruit is deep, lemon and apricot, with this same lanolin feel I’ve noted in other vintages. This drinks like Meursault - excellent stuff. Thanks LF, can’t wait for our new visit

Crispin and Golden Delicious take the foreground alongside fresh pear, white flowers and melon. More subdued aromas of raw honey and beeswax follow. The palate faithfully mirrors the nose alongside a creaminess and textural complexity that lead into a soft but lengthy finish.

Another solid vintage from LF. Tropical fruits, green apples, plenty of minerality and acidity.

Would like to try this again. Bottle was fine, think my palate was off this day.
