This is showing its age on the nose, but in the mouth it translates as minerality: it is an Alka-Seltzer character which is most appealing. Jasmine tea, snow peas, cloudy apple, cleansing ... it is quite a surprise. Wet rocks and shale, graphite and beach sand ... These are odd characters to write down, but they come from the wine, not from thin air. There's a lot going on. I like it.
