(from the highest-density planting in the area, at 3,700 vines per acre, according to Andy Smith): Wild, smoky aromas of musky citrus fruits and minerals. Plusher and silkier than the Isobel, showing more obvious ripeness to its stone fruit and vanillin oak flavors. Finishes broad and full, with lingering notes of vanilla and nuts. Smith chose the best barrels to make this wine, and they happened to include a high percentage of new oak, including a lot of Chassin barriques .Author: Stephen Tanzer
