Tasting Notes

The ’14 is less arch and stinging than usual; it was done (again like ’13) in Fuder. Botrytis is an element here but subsumed into an exegesis of every different lime for the last 6,000 years. The finish is a vapor of mint and verbena. Certainly important and impressive, but I want to see how its elements finally play together. – Terry Theise
