Winemaker's Notes

(From 2010 Vintage) Straw-yellow. Musky peach, tropical fruits and a hint of soft citrus fruit, with complicating notes of flinty minerality and smoky, vanillin oak. Broad and rich on the palate, with chewy flavors of white peach, ripe lemon and stone. Finishes tactile and dry, with a light touch.

  • Connoisseurs' Guide to California Wines
    (From 2007 Vintage) The dry, woody, almost ashy first notes in this wine's aromas are joined by just enough ripe apple fruit to keep things near to the expected track, and the wine's early flavors on the palate repeat the favor. In the finish, however, the wine runs into bothersome sharp and sour elements and falls apart.
