Straw in the glass, quick forming tears, nose is aromatic at the chin with citrus blossoms and earth, ripe fruits on the zippy palate with tangerine and Texas ruby red grapefruit. Very nice, well made high quality wine.
Tasted in a three-vintage lineup of 2012, 2013, and 2014. All stored since release. On opening, 12 came across as a bit astringent and acidic, with a bit of tanginess, while the 13 and 14 were sequentially richer and more lush, with everyone preferring 14. After an hour of air, they all gained weight and richness, with the effect that 12 became beautifully balanced and complex, while 14 ended up just feeling heavy, especially on a hot day. Leave 13 and 14 alone, and let 12 air for an hour if opening now. Serve at 50ish.
Pale yellow, moderately expressive nose with some earthiness, palate is vibrant with pronounced sweet/tart flavor of mandarin orange and lime blossoms, crisp acidity and minerality leads to a long clean finish.
