    La Hermana probably offers the most value from the wonderful Liquid Farm line up. The cool climate Santa Maria valley fruit is so delicate and elegant, it's impossible not to love it. Add in the cool and collected team at Liquid Farms and you've got easily one of the exciting wines under $40 in the store. Designed like all the LF wines to retain natural acidity, this wine exhibits incredible freshness and a deep complex minerality. Those gorgeous structural elements are framed by some heady notes of underbrush, beautiful candied citrus, wild honeysuckle and juicy white fruit. I could easily imagine putting a few cases of this down for the next 5-10 years. At this price it's a total winner.

    I find La Hermana to be a touch riper than the White Hill; that is, the fruit flavors are a touch more tropical. They border on peaches and bruised red apples with a light lime zest. This bottling is soft and silky, perfect for having as a cocktail or with a spicier dish.

    Drifting into the full-bodied style, La Hermana evokes a more rich and bold profile with deep apple fruit, white flowers and hazelnuts. The fruit is intense but there is so much backbone that this wine has great potential for a little short term cellaring. One of my favorite wines from Liquid Farm, this is a bottle that will cut through rich dishes if I drink it now, but I would not be disappointed to find one in my wine locker in a couple of years.
