flawed
Two bottles in the home cellar came up flawed, full of visible yeast floating in the bottle. Disappointing since we loved the 2013 vintage of this wine.

I'm in the camp that says this still needs more time. The bottle we opened tonight was still wound up pretty tight and tannic.

Very enjoyable! Nice and refreshing with that all important 'hiptang' my wife requires of her white wines!

This came across as a little syrupy and confected. A little disappointed in this, even with a nice match of grilled ribeye.

I was pulling for this one but all I got was a decent weeknight patio without a whole lot (any?) complexity. Not thin or flabby or anything, just a mixture of dark fruit and heat. Totally pleasant but lacking that extra something. Maybe needs more time?
