Marston Family Vineyard – Albion 2016 – Napa Valley

The nose is fruity, aromatic and a bit powerful. It reveals notes of quince and nectarine associated with small hints of citrus, flowers as well as discreet hints of nutmeg. The palate is fruity, fresh, well-balanced and offers a good definition, a beautiful substance, fat, suavity, a small tension, a good finesse of the grain as well as minerality. On the palate this wine expresses notes of ripe / fresh lemon, fresh / juicy kumquat and small notes of brugnon associated with small hints of fresh apricot as well as slight hints of exotic fruits, fresh flowers, wood and very discreet hints of vanilla (in the background). Good length and good persistence. Slight crunchiness and presence of an imperceptible hint of almond on the persistence.
