A wee BloodyPulpit:
1. I hadn't had this wine in over year and I was impressed. It has a brisk acidity but is starting to put on some weight and developing lovely aromatics. Beautiful stuff.
Now that Mike no longer gets the MonteRosso Semillon, the base for this wine, I wonder what will happen to the Derivative?

Thanks for the write up. The 2010 Derivative was easily one of the best Carlisle's I have ever had.
