This is AP#33.
Emerald. A teeming, brackish, reductive tidal pool of a nose: opal basil, tissane, hyacinth, pithy citrus, savory black bassalt. Tense, brothy and a bit reticent on the palate: peach stone, apple pit, yuzu, wild sage. A slurried texture. A kumquat acidity. Finishes saturated in lavender and brine, with the impression of a still-seething cauldron of liquid minerality. Feels a bit wrung out presently. Give it time and space to graduate from charm school. From 2015+.
