Wine EnthusiastAn oil-like shade of yellow in the glass, this is still a baby, showing aromas of walnut, seared lemon, yogurt, white flowers, oak and smoke. The acidity is pure and strong, cutting through the nutty flavors and savory richness. Sea salt, browned butter, Meyer lemon peels and orange marmalade flavors will only grow more cohesive with time.
Wine SpectatorThe spicy oak is dominant, giving this a cedary flavor and texture, slowly rolling into a core of pear, melon, fig and apricot notes. Drink now through 2023. 1,495 cases made.
