This outstanding vineyard, matching mature vines to biodynamic farming, really shines in 2014. A toasty nose sends up coconut and vanilla notes, leading into a full-bodied full-flavored wine with the structure to age another decade or more. It's the perfect balancing act between immediate accessibility and long-term cellaring potential. Drink now through 2030.
