Big, bold, and and ready for action. Kind of like a mixed martial artist in a shiny, purple leotard. Stone fruit parfait, violets, and a never-ending finish. Tasty but pricey.

Very good, but I think a few years away from what I like. Still has a young ‘spritzy’ edge, I like them more when they reduce and become oilier. But has great Riesling fruit up front and trailing minerality. Also not quite enough of that Riesling petrol and plastic hose bouquet.
