USA — California • $22.95 • 89/100

While there is more grassy character than I noted in the previous release of this vintage in March, the wine retains its characteristic smoky, lemon, apple and melon nose, with a hint of white flowers, and an underlying note of resin. The palate is fresh, with lively fruit, firm acidity that brings the wine to life, and a depth from oak aging that has given very little direct flavour. This is a benchmark California wine, but I love the higher degree of freshness that is evolving with this brand. • Tasted 2017-08-05 • LCBO id#221887 • Find it at your nearest LCBO • ARTERRA WINES CANADA, INC.
