Tasting Notes

Yet again reduction hides everything but the floral influence. By contrast there is stunningly good power and intensity to the very, make that very, very backward broad-shouldered flavors that brim with both buckets of dry extract and an almost pungent minerality on the precise, dusty and massively long finish. I appreciate that I sometimes probably sound like a broken record with my "absolutely must have patience" comments but this is a wine that would be largely pointless to buy without the express intention of cellaring it for at least 12 to 15 years and it should richly reward 20 to 25. In a word, impressive. Allen Meadows
