Was really looking forward to this bottle as there seems to be a lot of excitement about it. Wrapping my head around this wine, it seemed like allowing it to breathe in a decanter for hours would be smart. Bristling acidity, reduction at first. Mercaptans and oxidation inflect the aromatics as well as on the palate. Moldy lemon. Perhaps wet rocks. Bitter, fuzzy mousiness on the finish. A touch sweet? I don’t get it. It devolved into green garlic volatility and cheese.

More acid / liveliness than the collier that preceded it. Equally as delicious.
