Thought I’d review this again as we are tasting the 2016 vs the 2017.

Wet leaf
2016: peppery and vegetal
2017: more intense aromas. creamed corn, floral and mild pepper

liquor and aroma
2016: bitter vegetal.
again very vegetal and peppery. high astringency

high astringency, but not as noticeable due to the creaminess/umami. bit of a lactic quality like a sour sausage

Overall, the 2017 is more floral, mouth-filling and balanced. whether this is merely due to being fresher rather than vintage variation unknown, but fun to compare.

I like tea; I’d like to drink more of it. I also like wine; I probably drink too much of that.
