Tasting Notes

Compared with the ’16 Lyra this is, as usual, deeper, more inferential, certainly more inscrutable and complex and interior, and more visibly profound, more analog and loaded, but what it’s loaded with is still to be seen and known. It’s an older soul, more searching, less chatty. The ’15 has a stop-you-in-your-tracks aroma, entirely without “fruit,” but full of spices and dough at every stage of baking, bacon just as it warms in the pan, cherry blossoms at a peak of pungency. The palate is a compound-chord, part spice, part grains and straw, part mint and mineral. A truly grand wine, regardless of color or grape or vintage. – Terry Theise
