(2005 Vintage) Brilliant, pale straw color. Citrus aromas of lemon and floral notes are followed by subtle notes of mineral and vanilla bean. Fruit flavors and citrus on entry complemented by round mouth-feel and defined Camp Meeting Ridge vineyard minerality leading to a long, complex finish. This wine spent 11 months in barrel and an additional year at the winery in bottle prior to this release. Drinking impressively now and will continue to develop.
