Racy and crisp, this wine showcases the balance that is a hallmark of the best ’04s. Green apple and lime aromas segue easily into similar flavors, graced with touches of spring flowers and leafy greens, while the vibrant apple notes linger elegantly on the finish. Imported by Michael Skurnik Wines.
New World enthusiasts may ask, “Where’s the fruit?” This wine is all about the earth, and fans of terroir should jump at it. Smoky and earthy on the nose, the palate delivers deep, rich notes of honeyed stones and dried spices. —J.C.
