Sweet-tart tangerine and quince are shaded in deep folds of smoke, crushed slate and pollen in this nuanced wine. Savory spice and earth tones are prominent now, but a core of pristine honey and citrus notes pulse from within. Concentrated and composed with radiant lemon-lime acidity, it's likely to improve with bottle age. Hold till at least 2020.
