(from a .76 ha parcel). Here there is a bit more elegance to the red and dark cherry aromas that are liberally laced with earth, humus and game wisps. This too has a lovely sense of vibrancy and a finer mouth feel despite the presence of a taut muscularity to the medium-bodied flavors that also display event minerality on the notably more complex and persistent finish. This will need up to a decade of aging to arrive at its apogee. (90-92)/2023+
