Community Tasting Note

  • Tim Heaton Likes this wine:

    October 10, 2016 - Just now in its preferred window, but with many good years and even some upside yet ahead of it. My first of four, this was Audozed 5 hours prior to serving. Still, it needed another two hours of being open and sampled before this had revealed all (or at least most) of its charms. Excellent varietal character, with wave after wave of earth; each wave seeming to bring something unique to the table. Medium-bodied, with excellent acidity, this was actually showing a lot of youthfulness around the 45 minute mark (swirling all the while) in the glass. Beautiful, honest, and for me, quite dreamy. I'll open the next one in 3-5 years, and will be sure to aerate in wide-bottom decanter for at least 2 hours prior to service. highly recommended

    A great standard bearer for what's possible in the region; served non-blind.

    ***1989 was an awful vintage for this region, lots of mildew/disease, etc., but this wine did not show anything less than ideal++. A testament to the work that went into the vineyards that year; brilliant winegrowing. ***
