Community Tasting Note

  • gunpwdr wrote: 85 points

    March 22, 2012 - Nose: White flowers, chalk, lemon/lime fruit, gravel. Palate: Lemons, dusty gravel, smoke on the attack. Acidity builds in intensity on the mid-palate to the point of astringency and being puckering and is joined by wood spice and pepper. Once that fades, lemon candy lingers and wood spice linger on the finish.

    Piercing to the point of being jagged, this white channels Alsace riesling for me, albeit with a little more fruit weight. I could use a hair more sweetness and definitely less of the massive acidity on its backbone.
