Wine Description

(1996 Vintage) For color, the winemakwer prepares a small portion of Pinot Noir with extended maceration and adds about 5% to the blend before secondary fermentation, imparting a subtle salmon tinge. Both the 60/40 blend and addition of the small amount of red wine creates a charming wine of discreet finesse.

    (2000 Vintage) "This goes for personality and finesse. An assertive, honeyed style, with plenty of citrus flavors. Mature coffee and roasted nut accents are peeking through, with a robust structure and a dried citrus aftertaste. Drink now through 2025. 32,000 cases imported."
