I'm really not much for proclaiming "the vintage of the century!!", particularly on the basis of a single harvest; but the 2016 Orion will be exceptional by any standard, Dionysus willing of course, & as always. Beautiful mature flavors at a significantly lower lever of sugar than usual recently; perfect acid balance; perfect balance generally, one of my known fanatic points of quality. Here is the finishing culture being poured into the main fermenter, seen from the inside out, as it were.
