This very young wine was tight and shy. It showed streaking minerality, soft, slightly sweet key lime, and the spicy flavor of ginger snaps. It also earned four stars out of five at the 2010 Palate Press Grand Tasting. Don’t drink with anything yet. This needs another year in wood, then a decade or more in the bottle.
