Still a good amount of oak coming through on this. Could use some time.

Cherry jolly rancher, strawberry, blueberry, earth. Medium tannins. Holds up to food. Paired well with pizza. Unmistakably Beaujolais. Good stuff. First bottle from this producer and glad I have a few more of their bottlings. Excited to try more.

For the vintage, I would expect a lot more ripe fruits here. Not getting much throughout. Some spice, lots of acidity as others have mentioned. Tannins are manageable but finish is short. A little disappointing

This is singing. Agree with previous notes that this vintage is the best in recent memory. These bottles will be gone fast.

Dank wet earth and sour cherries. Tannins are well integrated. Was not able to give this my full attention. Will be sure to give my next bottle a fair shake.

Nice, young. Quite giving in this stage but needs to mellow a bit.

Fascinating, delicious expression of syrah. Super fresh. Reminds me of Cru Beaujolais in a way. Awesome stuff.

Pretty complex and interesting wine. Earthy, mint, licorice, olive, chocolate, lavender, dark stewed fruit, plums. Awesome stuff.

Fantastic stuff. Takes you for a ride. Close your eyes and picture yourself in the Spanish isles drinking this eating octopus and shrimp until your heart desires. Just drink it and buy more.

Fresh crunchy fruit, cherry, strawberry. Some tannins lingering on the finish. Fun wine. Great with pizza
White
Papies note still nails this perfectly. Quite good at this stage
Red
Nose is closed down right now. Palate is fresh and there is a good finish. Maybe in an in between phase?

Agree with previous reviews that this doesn't have the legs to go the distance. This was absolutely great the for 1.5-2 hrs. Hour three we are getting really thin and acidic. Drink up and hope you get a good bottle. This one was great, for a fleeting moment.

Lots of bruised fruit. Medium acidity. Medium tannin. Amber in color. Complex and interesting. Pairs well with food. Almost a mint note on the finish? A serious wine.

Good minerality, some fruit. Somewhat round on the palate with medium acidity. Great value and drinking well now. Not sure I see the need to hold this for super long as it seems ready to go.

Absolutely fascinating. Bright ripe sour cherries on the nose with some tar and hint of rose. The mouthfeel is so full and enchanting it really steals the show. A really unique and amazing wine

This was pretty good. Not your typical nebbiolo profile. More dark fruits and savory, almost syrah like

Lemon/citrus, brioche, green apple, chalky minerality. Follows the oxidative style. Good value

Needs time or a long decant. Still enjoyable now.

Decanted for a few hours. Olive, some smoked meat, spice and dark ripe fruits. Very enjoyable syrah.

Pretty tight even with a few hours of air. Good structure and fine tannins. Not a ton of fruit to write home about. Hold for a few more years.

Spice, earth, tea, fruit notes on the nose. Palate is in great balance. Good acid evening out the smooth tannins. Fruit, earth and some eucalyptus tea notes. Slightly jammy fruit in the best way possible with that good acidity keeping it in check. Very enjoyable.

Fruit has faded but given way to some decent secondary flavors. No need to hold any longer if you still have this.

A little thin. Probably needs more time but ultimately not sure how much that will help. Took a while to open up. Somewhat muted nose. Decent acidity.

Strong tropical fruits, lemon curd, wet stone and minerality on the finish. This really opened up with time. Very good chablis.

Needs more time. Cherry and earth throughout. Some tea notes on the finish. Well balanced but definitely could use a few more years.
