One to the Dome

Such a gorgeous wine. Nutty and briar-sharp with a touch of petrol in the nose. 5-spice is strong. Clean and ripe in the mouth, salted licorice and an angsty sharp note up top–fruit elegant, dusty, restrained but not thin–before more petrol shows up in the finish. Lovin every minute of it.

This is the New Deal from Lodi, boys & girls. The prune-juice-and-vodka days are numbered in this region (well, let’s face it: it will never go away because: The 99%) and so many new kids are searching out the historic vines and making brilliant, thoughtful, world-class wines. Markus is definitely one of them.
