2012 Ultramarine Blanc de Noirs Heintz Vineyard Sonoma Coast- USA, California, Sonoma County, Sonoma Coast (3/2/2019)
Right off the bat the aromatics were striking and gorgeous. Fresh pear, apple and light toast, complimented by lemon zest kept me going back to the glass, just to smell the wine. I expected a more evolved palate, but it showed quite racy, with most of the expected richness reserved for the finish. Fun to drink now, but likely still has a good bit of runway. I will hold my last bottle for several more years just to see where it goes.
Thanks for the check-in. Sounds really great.
Wish I had some self-restraint and didn’t always blow through UM wines as quickly as I do. Never got to see them develop. One day, I’ll learn.
Got the notice that the Cruse Tradition is shipping in a couple weeks. Looking forward to that one.
