Description

"...laced with the essence of crushed rocks, lemon peel, white flowers and white pepper. This is an especially taut style, but there is also plenty of fruit depth to keep things in balance. This is such a gorgeous wine and also a terrific example of the style that comes so natural on the western edge of the Sta. Rita Hills." ~ Antonio Galloni's Vinous

"Light brushes of lemon peel and rind and soft nectarine flesh make for a very pleasant nose on this bottling, while a hint of Marcona almond provides depth. There is a strong sizzle of acidity to the sip, where a chalky structure upholds lemon-peel and tangerine flavors." ~ Wine Enthusiast
