(from a .43 ha parcel). Here too a subtle touch of wood sets off the pretty red berry fruit aromas that are cut with floral and earth nuances. I like the sense of energy to the beautifully delineated middle weight flavors that flash evident salinity on the impressively persistent finish. Lovely and this should drink reasonably well early one yet also reward extended keeping. 91/2028+
