2018 Tablas Creek Vineyard, Esprit de Tablas Blanc
“Pale yellow. A complex, mineral-accented bouquet evokes ripe citrus and orchard fruits, buttered toast and pungent flowers, and a fennel nuance emerges with air. Shows impressive depth and clarity, offering intense orange, pear nectar, sweet butter and chamomile flavors that tighten up slowly on the back half. Powerful yet graceful in style, displaying sharp focus and minerally lift on a long, penetrating finish that features lingering floral and orchard fruit notes.
