Consistent with prior bottle, delicious. Straw toward gold color, bright, with a touch of CO2 lining the inside of the (now full) decanter. I find these young 1er wines show much better, for my/our palates with at least 30 minutes aeration in decanter. That said, this wine was delicious from the first sip and continue, albeit fairly linear in nature, through the final glass. Lively acids, ripe-ish citric and orchard fruits, all framed by chalky minerals. Leans toward the round/modern side of things, but full on delicious, so who really cares. 12,5% abv., drink thru 2018, recommended
More flavorful than interesting, but then it's still pretty young, too. Medium-bodied, with good richness and equally good acidity. At less than $30, this is a safe bet, and a solid table wine. I'll probably pick up a few more as TW really enjoyed it (more so than I). My only nit was a lack of stony, mineral underpinning - though some fresh chalkiness helped to keep my attention. Good > very good. recommended. 12,5% abv, drink thru 2020
Very pretty nose of green apple and minerals, along with some spice and a lurking hint of oak. In the mouth, this is very forward and rather plush. But the minerality and crisp acidity keep this nicely focused. Very tasty and enjoyable. A-
Lite gold with med-lite viscosity in the glass. Wet stone, citrus, stone fruit, grass, slate minerals, green apple and tangerine pith on the nose. Med-lite body and mineral driven with tropical, stone fruit and green apple on the palate. Thin layers of steel and flint minerals, spice, herbs and grass. Bright, sturdy acidic backbone…it held up to vinegar dressing. Medium finish. Very pleasing.
