Brian Carter Cellars White Blend Yakima Valley Oriana 2010

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

Rather focused on the nose with plenty of apple and orange fruit, some tree bark and mineral notes with a lightly orange blossom/lilac floral edge to it. In the mouth this is fairly tense and firm with a lovely bed of minerality under layers of delicate, succulent apple, peach and citron fruit. Very lively with a nice sappy feel that picks up some peach as it transitions through to the moderately long finish, showing a really lovely interplay between mineral and very fresh fruit. I’m really digging this. Finishes with a zesty spiciness. Very lively stuff. 91pts

Very springy, fresh aromas of sweet fruit and fresh cut flowers. Finish is a little short, but good acidity.
