Winemaker's Notes

(From 2007 Vintage) Wine Tasting Notes Honeysuckle, apricot and peach flavors delicately mingle with hits of Anjou pear. Deliciously crisp and nearly-dry with overflowing orange blossom and spice flavors accented by aromatic jasmine and a delightful finish.

  • Connoisseurs' Guide to California Wines
    (From 2006 Vintage) 61% Sonoma County; 23% Napa County; 16% Mendocino County. Compared to K-J's Grand Reserve below, this wine is simply more interesting even if less sturdy in build. Its aromas of red cherries also suggest notes of loam and chocolate, and those enjoyable themes are repeated in comfortable flavors that seem likely to hold on for a year or two.
