First time having this largely under the radar producer in the US.

The nose reveals; lots of green and golden apple, Meyer lemon, lime candy, ripe pineapple, touch of white peach, green melon, butter, cream, honeysuckle, waxy notes, caramel, sea fossils, saline, mixed greens, light herbaceous notes, limestone, white spice, citrus blooms and yellow lilies.

The body is full, rich, lush and waxy. It has excellent mouthfeel. Especially, at around $40. Green and golden apple, Meyer lemon, lime candy, ripe pineapple, touch of white peach, green melon, butter, buttered popcorn, cream, honeysuckle to full honey, waxy notes, caramel, sea fossils, saline, mixed greens, light herbaceous notes, limestone, gritty/edgy, gray, volcanic minerals, really nice, powdery chalkiness, more white spice on the palate with some heat, citrus blooms and yellow lilies. The round acidity is beautiful. The long, rich, lush, waxy, rich, nicely balanced finish persists endlessly. Excellent wine for the money. Just misses 94.

Happy 4th of July eve to everyone in the US.

Nice stuff from @Max Kogod Love the lean, high acid flavor profile and the 2014 vintage.
