hmmm. so, had 3 glasses from the coravin 10 days ago, and now just poured another coravin glass. as with other funky whites (folk off, etc) the color has gone more brown, and this time there is a new band-aid thing going on now. I think this thing is awesome for certain things, but not this wine.

Whoa. May have peaked a year or two ago, but so layered and intense and absolutely requires conversation.

Needed to open up but concentrated and full of cutrus and sweet spice. Acidity still kicking.

Orange peel and spice. A wild orange wine. Hints of cucumber. Really interesting weird wine. The best this wine has tasted. $35

There's something otherworldly about this vintage, it just hits so many senses. Deliciously viscous without being cloying, acid is sharp without piercing, fruit is ripe without extraction.

Crazy golden brown color. Burnt marshmallow. Slightly cognac like. Super complex. White pepper. Almost impossible to describe. Really incredible. $40

Interesting and complex. Must of had some skin contact as the wine has a slightly astringent texture.
