Additional Information

“Stony and intense, with clean, well-etched lines. Peach, lemon and mineral flavors are shaded by oak spice. This is lively and still tight, but should unravel nicely with time.” 91 pts. -Bruce Sanderson, Wine Spectator, Oct. 3, 2007

    Lightly cedary, oaky nose. Persistent as well. Crisp, middleweight still with touch of CO2. Elegant, ripe, fine and long. Vivid, racy, complex with excellent length. Beautifully defined, very classy.

    Steely minerality complicated by fresh hay and hazelnut on the nose. Sweet, broad and ripe, with strong fruit flavors of lemon and apple. Nicely aromatic in the mouth. Rich, very ripe and long on the aftertaste. About 40% of this juice was aged in barrel until February, then all of the cuvee spent the following three months in wood.
