Vineyard-designated wines from this appellation are rare, and this wine shows the promise of this site. There's no mistaking the variety, with its enchanting aromas of fragrant flower, smoked meat, chopped parsley, green olive and purple fruit. Flavors are supremely fresh and bright, showing a mixture of fruit and savory, with assorted herb notes intertwined throughout. An extended finish, filled with notes of olive, caps it off. It's beautiful on its own but should sing at the dinner table. Give it time to open up.
