This is also quite aromatically restrained and it presently displays a hint of lactic character that may or may not dissipate quickly. To be sure it's subtle and does not significantly detract from the overall sense of purity but it's hard to predict how it may develop now that the wine has been bottled. Otherwise there is excellent volume to the round, powerful and concentrated medium weight plus flavors that possess a seductive texture where the ample minerality adds a sense of lift to the impressively long finish. As the description suggests this is a bit awkward and readers should note that my rating offers the benefit of the doubt that this will harmonize with cellar time. Tasted: Jun 15, 2014.
