(with thanks to Herwig Janssen and Hal Borthwick). A wonderfully layered and relatively expressive nose features ripe but cool green fruit, apple, acacia blossom and ample mineral influence that continues onto the imposingly concentrated and powerful flavors that terminate in a lemon-infused and intensely stony finish. This is strikingly persistent and while there is some austerity present I would expect it to eventually dissipate. Note that while this certainly could be enjoyed now, I would suggest allowing it at least another few years to further flesh out. Tasted five times in the last two years, including twice in 2018, with mostly consistent notes.
