This tiny production (250 cases), single-vineyard wine is boisterous on the nose, with pushy aromas of violet petal, earthy berry, cleaning solution and citrusy oak. Pronounced acidity and a raw, resiny oak texture give a hard, choppy feel, while flavors of cheese, coconut, vanilla and raspberry announce a warm-vintage wine. On the finish, excess acidity and abrasive tannins call for additional cellaring; best from 2015 onward.
