Raveneau @ Arlequin (Arlequin SF): The most expressive of all of these. Oak presents as lemon buttercream. Leesiness presents as pumpernickle. There’s a saline quality, and a savory tamari mushroom tertiary character. This is gorgeous and savory.
This had a very staid, reserved, very slightly musty, and I would argue slightly corked nose, which would explain how shut down this was. hardly any fruit, with slight marly earthy minerality. Very good weight, and you could sense the otherwise purity of the fruit, but this was an off bottle. Disappointing. Re-tasted about 2 hours later and did not improve. EWG at Green Street Tavern.
