Friday, April 26, 2013 - PnP and enjoyed while prepping dinner.
This wine is clear in appearance, light straw color, fading to a watery rim.
The nose is in good condition, and is in a developing stage, showing off med intensity aromas of green apple skin, lemons, w gravel, and a zing of white pepper.
The palate shows off a dry wine, med/med(-) in body, med/med(-) in alcohol (listed at 13.1% abv). Flavors here are med intensity lemon curds, green apple, and lime, with a hint of minerality and gentle spicy zing. There is bright med(+) acidity, and med length finish that is tart green apple skin and chalky minerality.
This is a very good quality, quite delicious Calif Vermentino, drinking well now, and will probably continue to drink well another year or 2, but it is so nice now, I wouldn't wait any longer myself.
