About

96

Occasionally a star is born and you get to watch; Silkman is one such. This wine is tight but lengthy, something of a contradiction but rules are for lesser mortals. It's effortless and yet tension is everywhere. It tastes of wax and citrus with various complexities whispered but not yet spoken. You could call it a sketch of the great wine it will become except that would do the pleasure of drinking it young, in all its fragrant fancy, a disservice.
