A wee BloodyPulpit:
1. The "Hers" Vermentino is the one Megan makes by customary direct-to-press & SS ferments. When young, I almost always prefer the "Hers" to the "His" (Vino Macerati) because of its more powerful aromatics. It's only after it has some age on it that the "His" comes into its own. Usually, the "Hers" doesn't show a whole lot of gain w/ age. But I was quite surprised by this "Hers". The first whiff had a familiar smell when I realized it had developed some of that petrol character you find in a mature Riesling. Don't think I'd ever encountered that before.
