|Vineyard:||C Donatiello Winery|
ELEGANTBright fruit, peach, pear, pretty oak, balanced acidity, long finish
Connoisseurs' Guide to California WinesDespite its initial impressions of juicy and accessible, ripe-apple fruit, this offering proves to be tighter on the palate than billed, and it is a wine whose firm structure and good fruit set it apart from the crowd. If finished with a slightly hard edge, the wine is charged with lots of lingering fruit, and, like its partner, it will show better if held for a bit.
