2011 Troon Vineyard Vermentino Foundation '72 Applegate Valley OR 12% $16

Apple blossoms, pressed flowers and a touch of quince greet the nose. Bright yet well-rounded with polished edges in the mouth, this shows off the quince of the nose layered upon apple and vaguely herbal flavors on the palate. There's nice focus and a mineral snap to this on the back end, which leads to a juicy fig-tinged citrusy finish that ends with some pith and pebbles notes. This is pretty good stuff. 88 points

    Came across the Uvaggio last summer and it was delicious. Great intro to the grape.

    I'm a little confused. I've registered with my Texas zip code, but when I click the link to find a particular wine, I'm given stores in New Jersey. That's a bit of a schlep, I think.
