Community Tasting Note

  • studleytrey Likes this wine: 91 points

    March 25, 2019 - This is nice. Light straw yellow color. Aromas of wet slate, sliced almonds and hazelnuts, and a light flinty, smoky character. Maybe a little waxy yellow and green fruit, but generally not a lot of fruit on the nose here. Medium body, acid, and finish, with nice texture to it, and flavors of pear and green apple, saline, and almonds. This was well made with a lighter touch and a nicely judicious use of oak (read: noticeable but balanced); dare I say "Burgundian?"—at any rate, well done. Should've probably gotten more than 4.
