(2023) A blend clones, including the 'hen and chick' Mendoza clone, some barrels were innoculated and others fermented with wild yeasts. All French oak barriques, 44 % new, and 100% underwent malolactic fermentation. Rich in oatmeal and almond creaminess, there's flint and gravel, as well as lime peel in the aroma. In the mouth it is full, silky and sweet-fruited. The oak is balanced, the citrussy thrust of acidity too, and while it is painted with a slightly broader brush than some here, it is excellent.
