Palmina Arneis Santa Ynez Valley Honea Vineyard 2007
Lilting acidity and freshness wakens the palate and envelopes the taste buds with harmonic layers of kaffir lime, wild fennel and then red Anjou pear, Fuji apple and the characteristic marzipan, almond and wild herb finish. Arneis will pair beautifully with savory dishes, seafood and hearty fare.
The nose is a bit feisty; it's a roasted, vaguely candied smell, the exhaust from a roasted nut vendor on a winter's night. Thick and toasty and strange in the mouth: dried flowers, almonds, shriveled apricots. I feel like I shouldn't love you, but I do.
Deep burnt apple pie and spice nose with a vegetal character. Smooth mouthfeel, yet thick, honeyed tones, flowers (maybe honeysuckle on the finish), and toast flavors throughout.
Very bright captivating fruit aromas, a bit yeasty with a dusting of poultry spices, with ripe peach, pineapple, mango, apricot. The mouth is fairly acidic and compliments the fruit very well. Solid length. Ok I read some other reviews and then definitely got Nuts4Nuts. What a website!
Lean but expressive nose. Complex light and slightly petroleum vibe - it's putting out a lot of flavors. Acidic potpourri with nuts, flowers, and a nice bready finish.
almondlicious. I can see this with some creamy pasta or richly sauced seafood - although full-bodied, there is plenty of acidity to cut through and keep your palate from flabbing out. one of the better italo-american bottlings I've had.
