    August 19, 2021 - Summer of 2021 Cornucopia of Wines (Dogwood Grove, Garezers, HHI): Super floral nose which really wows you. Love these dry and still vinho verdes – so unexpected to get a serious wine from this region and one that lacks effervescence. Nice flavors of honeydew, cantaloupe and honey.

    August 16, 2021 - Single blind tasting
    Pale straw
    Aromatics medium +. Peach blossom, orange peel. Rounded full nose
    Palate has medium body. Acid medium +. Phenolics medium. Alcohol medium. Ripe peach, meyer lemon.
    Finish has medium + length. Balanced
    Dry glass notes muted, almost cardboard
    Overall nice fruit based Alvarinho
    Drink now, has the structure for more aging if desired though

    August 9, 2021 - Pale gold color
    Medium plus aromas of lime/ lemon zest/ citrus blossom and orange oil - high complexity and extended skin contact appears to have really intensified terpenic concentration
    Medium bodied with palate of stonefruit - ripe peach and pear with Meyer lemon
    Medium plus acidity with medium alcohol and moderate phenolic bitterness, but not as much as I was expecting
    Nice length
    Concentrated Albarino (Alvarinho) on the nose and palate - really nice
    Drink now or hold 3-5 yrs

    July 3, 2021 - Day 1 - Focused high toned aroma consisting of lemon, green lime/apple, and flint/smokiness not too far away from wet wool. Shape/texture of acidity is like soft wool knit again - horizontally broad, vertically a little puffy/airy with nerve, with gently piercing sensation on surface. Aftertaste contains some hint of grape innerskin jelly-ish flesh, amino acid umami, and slight tannin - the wine appears bone-dry initially but leaves moderately ripe and subtly rich/warm impression at the end. Refreshing, typical, with added touch of uniqueness. 89.

    Day 4 - Improved. gained additional layer of apple cider. Acidity got more rounded, keeping the same airy texture. 90.

    June 18, 2021 - Grows on you on day 2 - nose of lemon-lime pith then big tart grapefruit and stony minerals are made fleshy as it warms a bit in the glass for a nice tangy lemon cream tart bite of acid which lingers on the back palate. Apricot jam and a kick of mild pepper spice on the finish rounds this out. I keep pouring and returning to it, so yeah, it's a decent sipper worth seeking out.
