This smoky, perfumed single-vineyard wine has exotic spice flavors and a rich texture from wood aging. Made from the rare Zierfandler grape (only 200 acres are planted), the palate has weight, a good depth of yellow-fruit flavors and a generous character. It could age well another year or two. Screwcap.
