Block 94 the 1990s single-vineyard section is as a reminder, “a particularly good Sauvignon Blanc block,” noted by James Healy. Character is very much lees driven and reduction is at the top of the freshness, or fresh making game. It’s a delicious and frantic one.
Really smoky, more so than the 2015. A little more oaky, but the acidity is brighter and crisper. Less rich overall than the 2015 but still some lively citrus fruit. Tight and a tough spicy on the finish. Still so youthful and even more elegant and long than the 2015.
