More grissastitt from TheBloodyPulpit:
1. I was a bit surprised at how fast the GV was moving along in its evolution. At release, it had loads of ripe GV fruit character and I thought it was of a smaargd level of quality and would live quite a long time. But it's lost some of that lush fruit & ripeness and has developed more minerality than I expected from it.'s quite a good GV & I think Mike makes the best GV in Calif.
