Do all roads lead to Burgundy? Yes they do! While this wine still has many years to go, it is drinking beautifully now. I love the earth, mineral, mushroom, and spice on the nose. Very expressive in the glass. The finish contains bright red berry fruit with great purity. A slight citrus, orange rind grippy finish that will no doubt mellow out with some time in the cellar. Love it!
Tuesday Night Double Blind $50+ (Bin 75): Ruby core with reddish maroon rim; new and fresh nose, sweet tart red fruit, some sulfur, rock underneath; very tart on the palate, sour dark red fruit, a certain leanness, very rocky, sappy, lingering sour cherry on the finish; delicious; 91+.
Double Blind $80 - $100 (Bin 75): Bright maroon to rim; Burg, medicinal, cherry, sour, plum skin, sweet, juicy, limestone; some clay, harder on the palate, cherry pit but sweeter, concentrated, almost closed, masculine; good, would like to see it unwind a bit.
PnP. Brilliant, if tightly coiled aromatics of sappy strawberry/raspberry, minerals, and spice.
Flavors repeat on the palate with good freshness, and the tannins are obviously young but moderate enough to enjoy now. Just a hint of underlying green notes which adds to its freshness and complexity. Finishes medium plus, with good persistence. Balances masculine and feminine qualities very well. An excellent Caillerets.
