Tasted at the winery as part of a vertical of 18, 19 & 20. Much bigger, riper and more depth than the 2020 (at least at this stage). Hay/Gold in color, clear and bright. Wow, what a gorgeous nose. Classic. Floral (white flowers?), slight asparagus, and white pepper and a hint of spice. Medium bodied. Slightly oily texture. On the palate, lemon zest and lemon candy. Good acidity. Depth and tight complexity that opens in the glass. Long finish. This is drinking well now but may improve as it matures. Drink over the next twelve to fifteen years. Great on its own, this will stand up to heavier foods. Pork chops would be a good choice.
