So full of life and energy with an intensity and beauty almost beyond belief. This cool climate high-altitude vineyard expresses itself through freshness, bright crunchy fruit and an intensity of roses and violets perfume which draws you in. Strawberry, cherry and dark, juicy blackberry and blueberry fruit balance the classy restraint of pencil shavings and a fine scent of crushed stone-chalky minerality. A hint of marzipan adds to the picture of a highly charismatic wine. While focused and linear in its firmly structured frame, it offers lushness and silky texture with a macadamia nut-like creaminess. The ultimate expression of Pedernal Valleys world class terroir. Drinks perfectly at the time of release yet has evident cellaring potential which will further reveal a multitude of underlying layers.
