A leading family-run winery with organic vineyards and practices without intensive extraction; made from 80 yearr-old single vineyard, 24 months in French oak barrels; ripe, layered, and full-flavored
It offers an enthralling perfume of pain grille, mineral, violet, spice box, blueberry, and blackberry. Ripe, layered, and full-flavored, this smooth-textured wine is dense, packed, and very promising. . 94+ points - Jay S Miller
