This an ancient, fabled vineyard and the 2021 crop has delivered a great and memorably delightful expression of it. The aromas are an elegantly creamy mix of pomegranate, grenadine, lingonberry, violet pastille, sumac berry, pink peppercorn and fresh red rose scents poised above a genteel undercurrent of earthiness. It is at once piquantly fresh and texturally supple in the mouth, with deliciously lingering flavors of sweet picked crab apple, lingonberry, grenadine, cherry, toasted nuts, rooty spice and lots of star anise. As splendid as it is now, it may well prove even more so as it ages.
