Still love this wine but I no longer would call it full flavored. This bottle was delicate with notes of toasty oak plus some pineapple and honey. A wonderful wine from a region that has become my favorite in California.
Impressive wine no doubt because of highlighted oak supported however by ripe stone & tropical fruit. Palate is stll very fresh and juicy with complexity of flavours, packed with refreshing acidity and just about in check 14% alcohol. Long and still going strong over the next 4-6 years.
Needed time in glass or decanter to open up a bit. Nice minerally crispness, yet with a bit of roundness or creaminess in mouthfeel. Not overly oaky. Orchard fruit comes across both on the nose & palate.
