94 Points

Thursday, March 14, 2013 - 11.9% Alcohol, 29 g/l RS, and 8.2 g/l acid. Pale yellow with a tinge of green. Just as I remember it, very lean, focused and elegant on the nose with a precise line of lime, green, apple, flint, crushed slate, white flowers, and peach pit. A touch of crunchy green pea and vegetal grass. Dusty and taut. Maybe a bit of saline or chicken broth. Just beautiful on the palate - airy, elegant and again, focused. Lime fruit and crushed rocks - very energetic, but also restrained. This is the thinker of the trio, and it may be moving up in the rankings to become my favorite - hard because the Lahoma is so delicious, but this is pure pure pure. Prominent acid builds, but never burns or even buzzes - it just melds perfectly with other elements to provide liveliness and drive. Saline, lime, broth and slate are present in the excellent and wide finish. What really gets me about this bottle is its balance and class. Kind of Feinherb in style. Nose - 5.5/6, Palate - 5.5/6, Finish - 4.5/6, Je Ne Sais Quoi - 1.5/2 = 17.5/20.
