Bright straw in color with a slight haze, this wine is characterized by fresh fruit, mineral texture, and barrel complexity. Battonage and sur lees aging result in a texture that resonates through the pallet with nice tension and length. Aromas and flavors of apricot, honeysuckle, sweet peaches, brioche, roasted hazelnut, fresh cream and vanilla are very prominent.

In 2014, an exceptionally dry winter and warm spring led to an early bud break. The growing season ran ahead of schedule all year. The lower yields produced concentrated, complex, and age-worthy wines.
