2013 was a near clone of the 2012 growing season, until the third week of September when some rain called for some fine tuning in the vineyard. In the end, for those who performed vigorous selection, some quite fine wines were produced. For fans of this wine, the 2013 edition represents a hypothetical splicing of the best form both the 2011 and 2012 vintage wines - brought together as one. Aromas of white flowers, tangerine zest and banana, with pear nectar and green apple predominate. Engaging on entry with beautifully delineated flavors of lemon custard, key lime pie, hints of marzipan and liquid minerals. Long, lingering finish teases with a sense of sweetness, while the wine remains bone dry, clean and very mineral. Great combination of flavor concentration and underlying acid electricity. - the winery
