Intense and rich, this is impressive, ripe and full-bodied. It has a great texture with the steeliness of Riesling embedded in the richly fruity, concentrated floral and white fruit flavors. Now at the stage where it is good to drink for its fruitiness, it has much more to come. Best to wait until 2018.
