The 2016 Theresa offers an uplifting nose of Meyer lemon, orange peel, wet stones and flint. Despite the freshness on the nose, the palate is surprisingly rich, showing ripe peach, honey suckle and buttered brioche. Though the mid-palate has considerable weight, it’s followed by refreshing acidity as the citrus notes come through on the long lingering finish. Robert Parker: 92 | Vinous: 92
