    April 11, 2019 - Very nice bottle of wine. Saline frame, citrus, white flowers, and red apple with just enough acids. Recommended!

    March 27, 2019 - Are you kidding me for $20? Beautiful wine. Flowers and ocean spray on the nose. The palate is mouth puckering lemon-lime with some salt. Simple, but delicious. Now give me some grilled white fish tacos or shrimp.

    March 19, 2019 - 100% Albariño
    from eleven estate vineyards in northwest coastal Spain with granite based soils and average age 35 yr old vines organically farmed.
    Parcels fermented separately and aged six months on fine lees.
    12.5% Abv.
    Proprietor/Vintner/Winemaker: Eulogio Pomares

    A(ccuracy)=2: Med lemon/straw. Full, citrusy varietal.
    B(alance)=2: Focused fruit, acid not as distinctive as usual being a difficult warm and dry vintage.
    C(omplexity)=2: Citrus, tree fruits, mineral.
    D(epth)=2: Polished mouthfeel. Full palate and finish.

    Wine Tally Score [2,2,2,2] = 8/10

    Exemplary entry level bottling from pioneer of category.

    February 26, 2019 - Good white and citrus fruit presence with zippy mineral/stony acidity. Not a 'statement' wine and spot on for the region.

    November 8, 2018 - Light hay
    Intense fruity nose. Mostly citrus, some apple, slight rocky mineralogy.
    Nose carries over to the palate, augmented by pith.
    Medium long finish, reflecting the palate
