  • Ryme Cellars Vermentino 'His' las Brisas Vineyard Vermentino Carneros. California 2014

    Snoothrank:

    The color is very much on the peach side. The nose is over ripe orange/tangerine. The flavors also come out as ripe tangerine, ripe pineapple and orange soda. We only have one bottle so I'll look for others to add their impressions. Seems to be in line with my notes from the 2013 vintage. Read More
