Wine EnthusiastA flinty smoke aroma greets the nose first on this well-priced bottling from the Jackson family, with roasted Marcona almond, toasted brioche and seared lemon also showing. A bright energy bolsters the palate, where Meyer lemon ripeness gains pencil shavings and chipped oak flavors in the midpalate.

Wine SpectatorOffers an odd mix of smoky, toasty oak and pineapple and green apple flavors, showing a raw, edgy texture. The appeal lies in the intense fruit. Drink now. 50,000 cases made.
