Gorgeous. Nose is crystalline. Sweet cantaloupe, gorgeous minerality and its all presented in a narrow tunnel that is so focused. Some herbs as well. So clear and clean. Palate is equally as crystalline with stunning focus, precision and minerality. Just so taut and luscious with unreal juiciness. This is young and will continue to unwind. 9.4 for now but I will be back.

Terrific nose. So aromatic. So mineral. Huge acid and lovely lusciousness and a kiss of sweetness. Gorgeous purity and depth.

What an exuberant nose of citrus, honey, sweet pink grapefruit, amazing depth and dripping with purity and vividness. Citrus oil and dazzling minerality. American Grosses Gewachs to the max here. Much more open and less shy than the 18 was at this stage. Wet earth, wet rocks as well. Enormously complex. Jellied citrus as well. Wow. Palate is full of citrus but also has a seriously stoney base. So juicy, luscious and straight as an arrow. Amazing focus and linearity with insane confectionery fruit flavors. So balanced and stunning purity. What a wine. Sickness. What a finish. The balance here is perfect and the finish lasts a minute! This has such classy citrus elements on the finish that dance and echo for minutes.
