An excellent take on Albarino from California.  The grape is normally found on the northwest coast of Spain where it makes crisp youthful white wines.  This one is a bit rounder.  Light golden in color, clear and bright.  The nose has limes with a good bit of salinity.  Slightly oily texture.  On the palate, the limes come thru along with a nice minerality.  Crisp acidity.  Long finish.  The wine drinks well on its own but would be better with some salty and/or fried appetizers.  Drink over the next couple of years.  This is a bit pricier than its Spanish counterparts but this is as good or better than most of those as well.
