Usually this is GV rendered as Semillon, with a little hot paprika shaken into the mix. The '17 is certainly a big smoky voodoo beast, real wicca-juice. It's like you're about to leave home for a few weeks and you cooked all the veggies you had, especially the peppers and eggplant, with cinnamon and nutmeg, and then you sucked on a Ricola eucalyptus candy, and then you top-applied Timut pepper, paprika and marjoram to your veggie-mess. And then you served up the joyful slop, wrecked your shirt, licked your lips, licked your partner's lips, and let someone else wash the dishes.

Wine EnthusiastThis wine's shy nose offers mere hints of salty yeast. On the palate, the saltiness becomes more pronounced and is joined by white pepper and fresh lemon brightness. Ripe pear notes round it all out and let the pepperiness tingle on the finish.

Wine SpectatorRipe, with notes of marzipan alongside white peach, tobacco and lentil flavors. Viscous and medium-bodied, this is broad, offering just enough acidity to keep from being flabby. Drink now through 2022. 135 cases imported.
