    A deft touch of wood sets off aromas that include pear, apple, matchstick and a whiff of wood toast. The medium weight flavors aren’t quite as concentrated or mineral-driven though they do possess fine intensity that carries over to the lemony and slightly dry finish. This will also need at least some patience as the back end is presently fairly rigid though my sense is that this will ultimately reward waiting.

    Aromas of yellow peach, toast and spices. Rich, fine-grained and a bit youthfully bound-up, showing good energy and a phenolic firmness in the early going. Ripe stone fruit flavors are leavened by saline minerality. Most impressive today on the savory, firm, persistent back end. This lively wine has harmonized nicely since I first tried it from barrel a year ago but needs at least a few years of cellaring.
