92Gentle clean wood treatment frames green apples, pears, and toast. Soft fruit flavors dominate the palate, freshly picked green apples and pears baked until they’re just getting soft, then spritzed with wine. It has an underlying savoriness, roast nuts with a sprinkle of salt. Savory and citrus linger on the finish. Drink with Pompano. Highly Recommended. 92 points.
