Community Tasting Note

    January 12, 2014 - Light-medium gold. PNP, drank 2 glasses over an hour. I was really blown away by this wine tonight. I always like RSR, but this was the best I've ever had. This has a fantastic nose with a wonderful array of florals and fruit mixed with the smell of brisk sea breezes and a touch of earth. Orange blossoms, lemon, citrus, apple, and pears are present. The palate has racy acidity, great finely honed minerality, well delineated fruits of lemon, lime, apple, and pear, that flows into a dazzling finish. The power and finesse was striking. This was a dead ringer for an outstanding Grand Cru Chablis. Very exciting, and very young, could this really get better?! 94+pts.
