I just love this vineyard (across multiple producers) and Jamie's take on it is excellent. Light golden in color. The nose is beautiful with lemons, vanilla, a noticeable (but not overdone) note of toasty oak and slight almond flour note. Full bodied. On the palate, this is on the bigger side but no bomb. Great acidity. Lively with energy. It is delicious. Lemon fruit with a touch of toast and vanilla. Long finish. This seems like it should easily go ten to fifteen more years. It went wonderfully with a chopped veggie salad that included asparagus and drinks great on its own.
