This seemed just all right to me. Initially, smelled stemmy and kind of reduced but with air, all that seemed to go away and we did have it over 3 hours but the wine didn't seem to offer a lot of complexity nor finish.
Really expressive on the nose smelling of compote of summer berries dusted with icing sugar and violets. It is full and generous in the mouth but at the same time possess good detail for the vintage and level. There are some tart crunchy things going on and plenty of minerality. It is a wine of both perfume and structure and I like it very much.
New Yorkers welcome Morgan Clendenen to town with wine and ducks. (Peking Duck House- Midtown): Shows a knockout nose that's overflowing with fresh crushed cherry and strawberry aromas with a bit of spice and herb playing second fiddle. Nice fruit levels on the palate with quite juicy acidity. Red fruit dominates, though the wine picks of a green nettles note on the finish that grew with time, but was not unpleasant. Nice purity and persistence across the palate. Shows a bit young and tight, but is still enjoyable. A-/B+.
