Besides earthquake and drought, the 2014 was a beautiful vintage. The berries were gorgeous, thicker skinned, more intensely flavored and perfumed than the prior two vintages. The wine has crisp acidity, and low pH which would suggest it will continue to evolve for long term interest.
Honeysuckle, lilac, lychee, almond and white pepper aromas, backed by an exotic kaffir lime citrusy note, claims this wine’s place as a true aromatic. The palate is vibrant with crisp, mouthwatering acidity with notes of pear, almond, pineapple and green apple with a firm mineral backbone. This wine is delicious with both haute cuisine and comfort food. The big surprise will be in how well this wine ages.
