An exuberantly fresh and spicy nose speaks of cool red and dark pinot fruit that is trimmed in hints of sandalwood and anise. There is excellent intensity to the overtly mineral-inflected medium weight flavors that possess a saline character before concluding in a markedly austere and linear finish. This is borderline strict at present and will need a few years to flesh out and add weight. (89-92)/2020+
