Released only in top vintages, this wine comes from grapes picked during selective passes in the vineyard. That has produced a ripe, opulent wine that is just beginning to develop hints of toast to soften the intense acidity and bright acidity. It's a distinctive wine and likely to be slow to mature. Drink from 2018.
