DC 96
Decanter, January 2021
Decanter World Wine Awards 2021. Hints of honey, hay and marzipan on the nose. Rich broad palate with oily, gentle texture and a chalky acidity. Honey flows into the finish.

So concentrated, layered and phenolic. Keeps going. Yet, it remains agile and vivid. From organically grown grapes. Drink or hold.

On the savory, enveloping palate, tangy acidity accompanies pineapple, yellow apple, lemon drop and baking spice before a hazelnut finish. - KERIN O’KEEFE

It’s deeply textural and savory in character, with a silky, almost oily feel giving way to ripe apple with saline minerality that adds a bit of tactile grip. The finish goes on and on, buzzing with residual acids and spice. Very nice. -- Eric Guido

Shows a lightly toasty overtone, with accents of grilled nut and vanilla, and a core of tightly-knit ripe melon, jasmine, baked pineapple, and ground ginger and star anise spice notes. It's fresh and harmonious, but the detailed flavor range should unfurl more fully with short-term aging or decanting. Best from 2022 through 2028. 4,583 cases made, 150 cases imported. — AN
