Santa Maria Valley, Santa Barbara, CA
from our SANTA BARBARA EPISODE
AROMATICS Granny Smith apple, wet chalk, toasty, savory French oak aromas, hint of browned butter, but the oak treatment is elegant enough to allow a lemon-blossom, floral character to emerge in the wine’s nose.
PALATE Savory oak meets green-apple Jolly Ranchers with persistent apple and tropical fruit through the finish. Well integrated (wood and fruit) for such a young wine and offers a lot of subtle and delicious flavors early in its life. There’s a lot to love here-bright and rich, savory and nervey, balanced and delicious. Glasses empty quickly.
