My Spicy Asian Lettuce Wraps. You know what they say, “bring the heat, bring the sweet!”

On the nose; mellowed petroleum, grapefruit pith, very ripe pineapple, more green & some golden apple, white citrus, golden raisins, stone fruit, hint of slivered almonds, soft minerals and yellow lilies with white spring flowers.

The body is full, thick and rich. It’s acidity rounded, softer and really beautiful. Stone fruits; apricots, peaches & yellow nectarines. Ripe green melon, grapefruit pith, very ripe pineapple, more green & some golden apple, white citrus, golden raisins, hint of slivered almonds, far less petroleum on the palate than the nose, soft chalky minerals and yellow lilies with white spring flowers. Delicious on its own and a good pair with Spicy Asian Lettuce Wraps. Coravined glass for pairing.

Interesting this is $143 on Delectable. I didn’t pay anything close to that upon release. $55+ currently on Wine Searcher. I paid around $27 at release.

Yellow gold. Viscous and heavy in the glass. Bright fruity nose with notes of apricots, peach, spice, honey and crushed white stone. Very rich and glycerol in the mouth, but has a big backbone of structure and acidity. With air, it amplifies. Still young in its life, but a pleasure right now. Wanted something different tonite and the FE delivered.

No glyceral heaviness at all. Full flavored and with some petrol notes but no exotic elements and acid remains quite high. This paired with a bacon and onion tart really was one of the best pairings in recent memory. Fantastic and for current consumption. This wine's complexity went certainly beyond the fruit spectrum.
