Jay Kline Delectable Pro

Popped and poured; served slightly chilled. I wanted to try one of these in their youth so I can track development. At this stage, everything is very primary and rather simple...but there’s a lot of potential. In the glass, this is a beauty to behold; appearing the dance in the glass. At this stage in development, it’s all melons (think cantaloupe) and pastilles. The finish is long and waxy which I find typical of young Marsanne and Roussanne. Decent acid and minerality. Time will tell if these can develop into something much more interesting but it’s a very good wine for now. I will try again in 2027.
