($376; for 375 ml.) Even though this is still slowly fermenting, it displays refinement and lift alongside the viscosity of texture and honey, caramel and spice character it shares with Leitz's other '03 TBAs. The long, penetrating finish combines juicy fresh fruit and salty mineral layers. This year's entire TBA collection really demands delayed assessment but there can be no doubt that this particular wine is headed for the stars. 2 stars.
