2014 Black Label Vermentino - Applegate Valley
New Release! One of the finest white wines ever produced at Troon Vineyard
What a difference, keeping part of the 2014 Vermentino in barrels for a year. Aromas of wild cherry and blood orange, lightly pan roasted hazelnuts, gingersnaps and lemon blossoms. With deeper flavors of marzipan, lemon tart and almond croissant. Bright and beautiful freshness of acidity, and finishing with a classic ripe apricot fatness stretching out the finish for hours and hours. One of the finest white wines ever produced at Troon Vineyard and on par with the finest vermentinos made anywhere in the world.
