This is from the Spoto family. Specifically, their daughter made this from Lodi Silvaspoons. If you aren’t familiar with Spoto wines, do yourself a favor and try their wines (specifically their Godfather blend and their Private Reserve cab).

My first time trying a torrontes wine. Very perfumed and floral aromatics...similar to some of the big Napa SauvBlancs being put out these days. Smells like a densely packed Viognier too. There is crushed limestone, chamomile, sea salt and underripe peach. Waxy and medium bodied palate. Herbal, slightly weedy with a tart lemon-lime and honeysuckle note. I think this is better slightly chilled as opposed to when it gets closer to room temp. Incredibly unique and at the $25 price point, undoubtedly worth it. Thanks for the heads up

@Shay A I love Torrontes - a very noticeable profile on nose and palate. One of the blind tasted wines in the WSET Level 3 exam I took a few years ago. Stood out like a sore thumb 😄
