Winemaker's Notes

(From 2004 Vintage) This wine has a fine, complex fragrance, blending sweetness and nobility. It is smooth and silky in the mouth, with considerable substance and structure. A remarkable balance, with a fresh, harmonious finish.

  • Connoisseurs' Guide to California Wines
    (From 1996 Vintage) Rich, polished and layered, this gorgeously crafted wine delivers a most enjoyable and sophisticated nose of roasted lemons, water crackers, hints of honey and austere but always supportive citrusy fruit. Its foamy, creamy mousse hits just the right note for the deep, complex and wonderfully refined flavors, and its long, engaging finish adds even more to like.
