Elegant and creamy in texture this exhibits citronella peach floral and mineral aromas and flavors all nicely layered. Still a touch raw on the finish yet all the elements are well-proportioned so give this another few... Elegant and creamy in texture this exhibits citronella peach floral and mineral aromas and flavors all nicely layered. Still a touch raw on the finish yet all the elements are well-proportioned so give this another few years to fully integrate. Best from 2010 through 2022. 104 cases imported. –BS

Knockout nose combines citrus and stone fruits flint acacia flower and a leesy nuance. Extraordinarily dense and tactile on the palate with uncanny clarity and energy to the flavors of white peach lemon wet stone and flint. A great stony expression with great thrust and persistence and an almost weightless impression. The palate-saturating finishing flavor of dusty stone is almost painful. I love this style. This was bottled just ten days ago and will almost certainly shut down in the bottle for a long time.
