WINEFRONT / SEPTEMBER 2015

Joe must have been letting off a few firecrackers near the winery sometime after vintage.  I miss home fireworks, though I don't miss my idiot brother aiming ball shooters at my head.  And that time he set the hair on the back of my head alight.

Spent fireworks, bran, white peach, preserved lemon, lime, vanilla, grapefruit and ginger.  Medium bodied, tight acidity, gentle creamy gloss, distinctly flinty and chalky, all bursting with ripe citrus, green apple tang and spice on a very long finish.  Power.  Movement.  Complexity.  Touch and go for 97 points.  I'm really excited by this wine!
