Brilliant aromas of tangerine, beeswax, chamomile and wet stone combine with our signature floral scent reminiscent of honeysuckle and jasmine. Pink grapefruit, pear and apricot expand out over the rich, viscous, mid-palate. Though surprisingly well integrated in its youth, the concentration and vibrant structure of this wine suggest an extremely good vintage for aging in the cellar. Decant on to two hours before serving.

Wine EnthusiastFrom four estate vineyards with an average vine age of 33 years, this sparkles in creamy texture and sophisticated, yummy flavors of tangerine, grapefruit and pear. Stony minerality plays on the palate throughout, buoying complex components of jasmine and a lingering, more concentrated finish of honey. With plenty of structure and stuffing, it'll only get better over time, through about 2018.

Wine SpectatorTrim and tilting toward the citrusy side, with a leesy mouthfeel and pithy notes of lemon and grapefruit. This presents a laser beam of flavor and will best be served by a year of cellaring. Drink now through 2024. 3,360 cases made.
