Community Tasting Notes 126

  • Schwarzer Hund Likes this wine:

    April 24, 2021 - Medium Yellow color, intense mineral driven (wet rocks) and lemon/lime citrus providing plenty of acidity, trace of iodine and a faint floral and butterscotch end note. A long intense finish ended our last bottle. A perfect wine to balance the richness of butter poached Alaskan halibut cheeks. Reading through several CT notes for this wine it is surprising the high variability in opinions. Ours were purchased upon release from Rhys and kept at 55 deg and high humidity. No decline in quality was observed.

    May 21, 2020 - Butterscotch, white flowers, rich and round with good acidity. Goes down easy.

    May 15, 2020 - Fragrant nose and lively palate with citrus, mineral, and a hint of vanilla which carries to a moderate finish. Continues to drink well with a bit more mature fruit and vibrant backbone.

    April 16, 2020 - Bright gold color.

    On the nose, white flowers, quite tropical (guava), and a touch of smoke.

    Full quite ripe palate. Orchard fruit, baked apples. Broad mid palate. A touch of spice. Carries itself well across the palate. I think a touch past peak here, but showing better than some recent notes.
