2016 Pott - Space and Time Chateauneuf-du-Pott Vineyard Mount Veeder (92 pts) @aaron _pott @mastersofwine · 🙋♂️ I love when winemaker's have their own label, is this the truest form of their art❓· ℹ️ The newest wine from Aaron Pott's personal estate at the top of Mt Veeder. Mt Veeder is a dormant volcano and vineyard sits at 1500 ft above sea level. The soils are well-drained and made up of weathered sandstone and shale. The wine is an unannounced blend of Merlot and Cabernet Franc. Tasted at the IMW "Considering Merlot" tasting panel with Aaron Pott, who is the Winemaker and Owner· 👁 Deep ruby color· 👃 Medium+ intensity on the nose. Aromas of ripe red plum, black raspberry, oak, cedar, baking spices, and violets· 👄 The wine is dry, medium- acidity, medium+ ripe tannins, medium+ alcohol, and full body. Medium+ length finish of perfectly ripe plums and sweet spices· 🔔 Aaron seemed to be a bit critical of his wine during the tasting. Possibly because it is not planned to be released until Feb 2019 and needs more time? However, for me it was showing well and honestly the extra time in bottle could make this stellar. This is a wine designed to show best after considerable time in cellar, based on it's structure. I don't know the price point, but assuming it will be significant given it's pedigree. Check out these wines, if you can get on the mailing list as they will be limited.
