Well, my marathon trip is now over, some 16 days, and most likely over 1,000 plus wines tasted. And the verdict is: the 2016 and 2017 vintages ROCK. Virtually across the board, all of the wines I tasted were excellent-to-superb. The key is keeping acidity and freshness in the wines and virtually all the growers I tasted managed to achieve these results.
The reds have depth, freshness, elegance, and grace and the whites also have a beautiful spine of acidity enveloped with the long legs of richness.
While I have not yet decided which specific wines I want to bring in, rest assured they will be wise choices. I have not been this excited for certain vintages in a long time.
