Review

Light gold.  Broader and riper on the nose than the Three Sisters, displaying scents of ripe melon, Meyer lemon, iodine and toasted nuts; think Meursault versus the Puligny-like character of the precious wine.  Pliant honeydew and citrus marmalade flavors are complemented by vanilla and tarragon nuances and a hint of smoky minerality.  The mineral quality sharpens the chewy finish, which clings with very good spicy tenacity.
