Beautifully balanced, it has a tight, vibrant mouthfeel, good acidity, and a great finish. It will benefit from a year or two of bottle age and cruise for over a decade.

Mineral-driven pear, orange and floral qualities on the intensely perfumed nose, along with a hint of iodine. Silky, focused and lively in the mouth, offering sharply defined citrus and orchard fruit flavors complemented by suggestions of fennel, sweet butter and honeysuckle. Shows excellent concentration as well as energy, and finishes minerally, precise and very long, with repeating floral and pear notes. 28% new French oak. -- Josh Raynolds

Familiar and comforting on the palate, the wine lands softly, with poached orange, light butter and delicate oak flavors, leading into a more complex finish of chamomile and cashew. MATT KETTMANN
