Forlorn Hope Nacre Semillon Yountville 2010

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

Nacre =Mother of pearl, wine was made specifically for oysters Vines planted in the 50s. 30 acres of head trained, dry farmed, organically farmed Semillon in the heart of napa valley. Savory, green almost pickle, jalapeño, and naples aromas on the nose. This is tight in the mouth with big acids supporting youthful grapefruit flavors on the palate. With just a hint of beeswax on the nose, along with lemon pith flavors adding detail to the zesty, long finish this is hinting at future complexity. There's fine cut here and this shows a good hint of richness in the mouth finishing with flavors of orange, and big orange acids, huge acids, hint of beeswax on the nose. 90pts
