|TASTING NOTE: Bottled three weeks before tasting and already cohesive and knit. From the lower section of Twenty Mile Bench's Foxcroft Vineyard. Beautiful directness, with brisk mineral spicing driving perfumed pear, yellow apple skin, lemon blossom scenting a lovely weighted palate bedded with stony lees. This has a lovely vibrancy brightening the wood, still knees and knuckles in youth but will merge and melt with the wine in time (which it certainly has ahead of it).
