This was just a bit too disjointed to me. Rich, full and oily - that's good! A bit too much booze, not enough acid or anything resembling balance. Thought this would be a perfect complement to Szechuan and it was simply its own very selfish entity!
Ripe and peachy and spicy and very primary. Really rich and broad in the mouth, but amazingly there is enough acidity to keep it together at least in a tasting portion. This is a bit over the top, however, and there is even a touch of heat on the finish. A fascinating tasting wine, but once again I wonder how, at least in this primary stage of evolution, I will enjoy it over dinner.
Very rich, slightly honeyed nose with a lot of fruit, citrus, some complexity and some heat. Full-bodied, rather sharp and fat, too high in alcohol and low acidity, somewhat hollow in the middle, very dry. Not mine at all.
Just silly good. My other notes but just better, even. (Trying out my new Coravin - this is the first white I'm trying with it.) Would I prefer a Coche Corton Charlemagne or terrific Chevalier Montrachet from a great producer? Maybe, but at $50, this steals the day, hands down. Not cheap, but this is playing in the big leagues and, as such, is a stellar QPR.
