[REVIEW] Early Mountain Vineyards 2019 “Five Forks”

Peachy and tropical, the nose also offers hints of citrus zest, citrus blossom, and crushed coriander seed.

Plump and juicy, the medium-bodied palate oozes with pineapple, mango, and peach flavors with nice mid-palate weight and nice, balancing acidity. There a gently creamy texture here, but without any of the obvious oak flavors that you might expect to accompany that feel. The finish is medium in length with a subtle under-ripe pear minerality.
