Tasting Notes

The wine always seems to be pure umami, pure inference; it’s often riddlesome, and always hard to “write a note” about. But this ’15 is atypically open. It’s the most phenolic wine yet in the sequence but nothing (yet) has been “done” to it; it’s drawn directly off the gross lees in cask. Relatively inscrutable, it goes a little wild in the glass and shows a high-pitched mineral sparring with a bone-brothy mid-layer typical of Dellchen. — Terry Theise
