Talking About the Wines:
-International Wine Report, July ’17 gave 91 points to 2016 Nosis. “Sourced from Rueda this opens with a lively bouquet of Meyer lemon oil, tangerine, gooseberry and white rose petal. The texture and mouthfeel is gorgeous as this delivers ripe flavors of lychee, white grapefruit, ripe nectarine and suggestions of baking spices. This is simply delicious and impossible to resist right now.”
-Vinous Media (Explore All Things Wine), Jan '17 gave 90 points to 2015 Nosis. "Bright yellow. White peach, tangerine, melon and honeysuckle on the deeply perfumed nose. Silky and open-knit, offering juicy orchard and pit fruit flavors that tighten up steadily on the back half. Finishes with a solid trust and very good persistence, leaving a suave floral note behind."
-Vinous Media (Explore All Things Wine), Dec '15 gave 90 points to 2014 Nosis. "Citrus zest, pear skin, succulent herbs, and chalky minerals on the fragrant nose. Sharply focused and spicy on the palate, offering intense Meyer lemon, green apple and bitter quinine flavors and a touch of fennel."
-International Wine Cellar, Sept/Oct ‘14 gave 90 points to 2013 Nosis. “Bright straw. Nectarine, orange, honey and chamomile on the perfumed, mineral-accented nose. Broad and fleshy on entry, then tighter in the middle, showing very good depth and clairty to its fresh citrus and pit fruit flavors. The mineral note repeats on the finish, which clings with very good focus and length. Quite a success for such a tough vintage."
