Medium yellow. Ripe, musky aromas of honey, wildflowers, butterscotch candy and ginger. Then surprisingly dry and youthful on the silky palate, with a rather laid-back texture and excellent depth. Finishes tactile and long, with intriguing stone fruit flavors. This would still benefit from a year or so of additional aging. Three-quarters of this wine (the portion from granite soil) was done entirely in stainless steel, while the 25% from sandstone soil was fermented and aged in 300-liter French oak, 20% of which was new.
