Lovely. White peach, eucalyptus, rose, raw almond, green papaya and green olive with an ever-so oily texture. If I had to compare with old world wines of similar makeup, I’d say this was riper but less mineral. This did not improve on day 2+ the way I’d expected it to, but I’m still curious to see how it performs with bottle age, as these varieties typically age very well.

Interesting wine. super aromatic and layers. Needs some time in bottle but pretty impressive for a Napa white blend

For some reason, “prickly pear” came to mind. Yellow fruit, white flowers, slightly herbal, good acidity.

Meyer lemon, dirty citrus, herbal garden, crushed shells, ocean water. Good stuff.

Rich and fresh. Ripe tropical fruits dominate the nose - mango, papaya, pineapple. Palate plays toward overripe fruits, but takes a refreshing turn on mid palate. Very round on the finish.

Acid and freshness is what this wine is all about. Great poolside or at the beach. Works well for Texas heat.
