Sourced from the vineyard's original 1970 planting, this is a succulent, dense, captivating wine. Scents of pollen, honey, tea and apricot lead into a mouthful of similar flavors. The tastes of apricot jam show tremendous concentration and length. It's a gorgeous effort that should continue to age and evolve now through at least 2030.
