Offers an underlying mineral element, with a solid structure that intermingles with the fruit and texture. Almost approachable now, but will be better in a few years. Best from 2022 through 2043. — B.S. collapse

The exceptionally rich and generously proportioned flavors are unusually seductive in the context of what is typical for the appellation, all wrapped in a velvety, sappy and palate coating finish where a hint of wood appears. This too should drink well young. collapse

It includes 40% whole bunch fruit and was depleted by 30% because of the frost, but it just came across a little dolorous at the moment. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannin. This feels a little foursquare and conservative and just needs more of the flamboyance and blue fruit you associate with this vineyard. collapse
