Minerals, struck-match/gun flint for days. Citrus fruit. Crisp acidity balanced by smooth, round texture. From dry farmed Herron vineyard, old vines planted in ‘69, hand harvested. 9 barrels. 13.5% ABV.

Had this BTG at Stella followed by a tasting pour with Marty at Raw Wine LA the next day. Wonderful Cali Sauv Blanc. (Posted wrong pic - bottle on left)
