Bright, high-toned, savoury-herbal, orange peel aromatics on the nose. The palate is lean, light-weight, with firm, dusty tannins, bright acids, and cherry-pomegranate flavours. I enjoy this vivid, translucent style with cracking acids. Tasted February 2013.
This starts off a bit nutty and funky, but give it time in the glass and it delivers bright aromas of nectarine and grapefruit in addition to the nut and dough notes. Despite this wine’s weight and richness, it’s crisply focused on the finish, where its grapefruit flavors really linger. It should prove relatively long-lived, but I’d still opt for drinking it over the next few years — J.C. (4/1/2014)
