"A monumental white, with lush flavors of quince paste and mirabelle plum at the core, while streaks of wet stone and chamomile give this another layer. Vibrant acidity keeps everything intact, providing harmony and keeping the fruit lingering on the long, waxy finish. Drink now through 2030."

"More acidity and structure than 2018, though still a big hedonistic wine (and 15% abv). But there is something deep and complex here. Rich and dense, with grilled tropical fruit and melon, underlying herb and spice, then at midpalate comes a drying, salty minerality and a precise and incredibly long finish."
