A whiff of lanolin is a harbinger of maturity adding depth and complexity to this penetrating, fruity wine. Sunny, but puckering pink grapefruit shines on the palate, but it's limned by a deep mineral vein that extends the finish dramatically. Delicious now, but sure to develop well through at least 2025.
