We’ve had two other vintages of this and loved it. This one is terrible! Thin, tart, and none of the mineral and brine that the other vintages head. Ended up cooking risotto with it. Not a good QPR!

solid effort, but at this point (2020, covid) it is just a super vanilla oak bomb, not much depth, not much acid or tannin to promise better

drink now or forever hold your glass
