  • Frank Murray III Does not like this wine:

    October 13, 2016 - Had this with dinner y/day, left the remainder on the restaurant table as I didn't care for this wine. I'm a bit conflicted too about it, as the wine was all over the place to me. Reminded me some of Sancerre, with salinity and lemon. There is some light oak hanging around in the texture, which accents the fruit with some traces of vanilla. What though was weird was the aromatic and color. The wine seemed a bronzy to me, and the flavor a little nutty so I was thinking oxidization? Then, what seemed to appear a few times was some nail polish likes notes, something volatile. All this explains why I left the remains behind.

    February 28, 2016 - Perhaps an off bottle, or perhaps I missed its drinking window, but this bottle didn't deliver much. Don't get me wrong, it was OK, but not up to the expectations set by the critics' reviews.

    July 3, 2015 - PnP. Great balance of power and acidity. More proof that his whites are his best work. 14.1%

    March 23, 2015 - Some oxidized notes on this, which clouded the palette. Still nice fruit and a good balance with acid, but I think I should have drank this sooner.
