APPEARANCE Clear, medium lemon green color intensity. NOSE Clean, medium+ intensity of goosberry, lemon curd, and granite minerality, fully developed nose PALATE Dry, medium+ acidity, medium body and medium+ alcohol, medium flavor intensity of gooseberry, pineapple, lemon citrus, and cream. The oak is apparent on the body, adding to the weight of the wine's body. The flavor of the oak is well integrated as it really only becomes detectable on the finish after the fruit has faded from the taste. CONCLUSIONS Very good quality, the oak is well integrated and adds to the entire character of the wine instead of dominating it., Ready to drink now, further bottle aging will not benefit this wine, Mid-priced

Warming up to it. It is warming too. Green pepper. Grassy. Grapefruit too.

Are we sure this is California juice?! Decidedly old world in style. Lemon rind, wet slate, lovely integrated acidity. Refreshing on a hot day!

It surprised me with the touch of Oak. A Sav Blanc with aromatics of Chard.
