The wine shows the crystalline citrus fruit and freshness so quintessential to the neighborhood. In the nose, it leads with lemon curd, buttercream and a touch of tangerine - fantastic concentration and focus. The mouth is refreshing and luscious at the same time. Meyer lemon, a hint of toffee, and mandarin orange fill out the middle, while the creamy tropical overtones round out the edges. The finish combines fresh citrus, sweet buttercream, bright acidity and a cleansing minerality that leaves you wanting more.
This really is the perfect pairing wine, suiting everything from light appetizers and sushi to pasta in cream sauce and pork. Or, nothing at all.
"Trim and tailored right from the first and showing loads of brisk, very nervy citrus-tinged fruit in league with wholly complementary oak, this compact and still-reserved effort is one that simply demands further age. It makes a bow to Burgundy when it comes to firm balance, and its complexing highlights of toast, lemon zest and wet stones come through without interference from overly obvious ripeness. It is not big and blowsy, but it is deep and long on character all the same, and it speaks with a clear and very confident voice to its cooler North Coast provenance."
"This presents a rich mix of white peach, nectarine and white flowers, both potent and graceful, lingering with a citrusy finish."
