Tablas Creek Vermentino 2018
A clean, spicy Vermentino nose of grapefruit peel, citrus leaf, green herbs and sea spray. Briny. The palate starts notably creamy, then Vermentino's characteristic vibrant acids come out, highlighting flavors of white grapefruit, and lemongrass, with an ocean spray note that lingers on the long, zippy finish. Drink now and over the next few years.

Wine EnthusiastThis is an extremely fresh and delightful bottling from a grape that continues to impress. Aromas of honeysuckle and fresh lemon seem slightly sweet but very subtle, and then the palate grips with a flashy tautness, carrying flavors of chalk and Key lime pith. It's as refreshing as wine gets.
Wine SpectatorOrange blossom and matcha green tea notes are vibrant and precise, with lime zest, grapefruit and subtle almond skin flavors on the finish, revealing a lovely thread of minerality and crisp acidity. Drink now. 1,140 cases made.
