This wine opens with layered aromas of fresh Meyer lemon, shortbread and ripe pear. On the palate are flavors of baked, locally grown, Gravenstein apple framed by hints of sweet spice and white peach. The end result is a broad, juicy, and beautifully balanced mouthfeel.
For chardonnay very good. Long finish, tasted hay and "green", also honeybutter, stewed grapefruit, green pear, yellow apple, dried meyer lemon. Med+ acidity.
Strong grapefruit notes. Floral and citrus nose. A little bitter for my taste but great flavor for those who enjoy citrus forward.
Lemon, vanilla, pear with a cream and butter medium, sweet body. Stone/gravel and some oak. Medium alcohol. Medium finish.
I used it to make the sauce for the scallops as well as enjoyed while eating them. It was an excellent pairing.
Very nice. Smooth, vanilla, mildly sweet, light oak. Great w/Havarti & Wheat Thins.
