Wine Details

Wine Description

(2013 Vintage) This wine shows bright Mandarin orange blossom, lemon curd, citrus and honey aromas. Full, ripe flavors of Meyer lemon, pear, honeydew melon and vanilla cream fill the mouth with a streak of minerality through to the nicely balanced long citrus finish.

Expert Reviews
  • Connoisseurs' Guide to California Wines
    (2007 Vintage) This bottling comes as a real disappointment considering the winery's ways with the grape in the past, and its marginal fruit is more candied than it is keen in varietal character. It intimates a brief bit of sweetness but flattens out in the mouth and ends on a note of chalky dryness.
