A beautifully aromatic wine, this has both great fruitiness and a tight, ageworthy structure. It's rich and full bodied with quince, pear and currant flavors. There is a mineral, chalky texture that is still young and nervy. Age this impressive wine, and don't drink before 2015. Screwcap. Artisanal Cellars, Select Wines.
