    December 30, 2014 - A real beauty. Clean and pure with taught acidity and a lovely saline character.

    December 22, 2014 - Sharp, saline, lots of talc. Nice.

    August 10, 2012 - Very nice...I wonder what it would have tasted like five years from now. Sharp minerality and citrus.

    June 29, 2012 - Beautiful bottle. Lovely tidal pool tones with spicy oak notes and white florals on the nose. Palate is trimmed and energetic with seashell, herbs, pear, and flint. When these bottles are on, they're so enjoyable.

  • igaf Does not like this wine:

    June 14, 2011 - This one was funkier, more advanced on the nose than the rest of 08s tasted with all the usual citrus and mineral notes (though rather weak), but also old wet foliage, some almost animal notes and iodine. Very intense, sharp acidity on the palate, yet with a full, buttery feel to it, with lemon and salty touches. Hardly balanced now. Difficult to say where it goes with painfully young palate and alarmingly mature nose. Not sure the bottle was correct, but no obvious faults either.
