($38; 15% vinified in new oak) Pale straw-yellow color. The reticent nose hints at soft citrus fruits; this has been totally closed since the bottling, notes Charlene Pinson. Then sweet, spicy and strong in the mouth, with firm acidity and wet stone character joined on the back by lemony acidity. This very dry, youthfully tight wine finishes with very good length and grip and may well merit an even higher score with two to four years of cellaring.
