A highly perfumed, complex bouquet evokes ripe citrus and orchard fruits, iodine, brioche and white flowers, and a hint of smoky lees emerges with air. Sappy and expansive on the palate, offering intense Meyer lemon, pear nectar and buttered toast flavors that pick up mineral and floral nuances on the back half. Powerful and deeply concentrated yet vibrant as well, finishing extremely long and sappy, featuring impressively persistent floral and mineral flourishes. -- Josh Raynolds

White peaches, lemon curd, sweet pineapple, quince and a dash of honey all combine gracefully, with a nice kick of fresh acidity. A light touch with new French oak (20%) adds a hint of vanilla and Key-lime pie to the finish. On the second day, it's just as good, if not even better. PAUL GREGUTT

Supple and focused, with lime-accented pineapple and clotted cream flavors, finishing with snap. Drink now through 2020. 303 cases made. — HS

It has an attractive, quite low-key bouquet with grilled walnut and smoky scents complementing the citrus fruit. There is a sense of control and precision here that I appreciate. The palate is well-balanced with a crisp line of acidity. It does not deliver quite the complexity of the aromatics, though there is tension here and a delicious squeeze of lime on the Burgundy-style finish. Enjoy this over the next 6-7 years. - NM
