Lifted and refreshing aromas leap from the glass, revealing notes of apricot, Marcona almond, jasmine, and creamy citrus notes tinged with vanilla. Beautifully round on entry and layered with pure fruit flavors redolent of yellow apple, pear, and ripe peach, with nuances of apricot cream and honeysuckle, all framed by rich textures, satiny tannins, and elegant baking spices from fermentation and aging in oak. All this is supported by zesty, mouthwatering acidity, which carries through on a long, mineral-driven finish.

Wine Profile
Ratings
94 Points ~ Meridith May, The Tasting Panel & The Somm Journal Caramel-coated pears and Key lime are unexpected aromas that are mirrored on the sleek palate. Aged for 14 months on the lees in French oak, it exudes notes of honeysuckle, white pepper run on tiptoes through its piercing acidity.
Production Notes
The fruit for this wine comes from a single block of a vineyard in Rutherford. Much like a white Bordeaux, the wine aged for 14 months in 100% French oak.
