Winemaker's Notes

91 points David Schildknecht (Wine Advocate): Sage, cassis, lime, and lemon verbena on the nose are a bit Sauvignon-like, an impression dispelled neither by the pungently, smoky mineral streak nor by notes of toasted sunflower seed on the palate. This combines palpable density with lift and refreshment, finishing long, emphatically, and unabashedly-austerely on citrus zest, iodine, sea salt, crushed stone, and herbs.'It sweats terroir, doesn't it?' remarks Barthelme, and who am I to try topping much less contradicting a line that good?! Expect this to evolve fascinatingly read more...-- and in an increasingly user-friendly fashion -- over the next 15 or more years. (Apr 2010) (hide)
