A very herbacious grassy nose that is not quite at catpee with a hint of an oxidative nature, much less aggressive on the palate than in the nose. It exhibits grapefruit rind and a hint of tangerine peel in the finish. The 15% Chardonnay gives the mid-palate a nice round feel.

Meyer lemon, lime zest, unripe stonefruit, grass, flint stones, and cattails by the water (so weird). Light bodied, high acidity, and a great finish. A salad of pea tendrils, fava leaves, fresh herbs, and a fresh farmers cheese comes to mind.

Mostly grass, ripe apples and pure sauv blanc flavors, little bit of chard in their too, if anything it fattened up the palate ever so slightly. Such a direct wine. Went perfect with grilled veg quesadillas.
