Blended with a small amount of Sauvignon Blanc from Bavarian Lion Vineyard, the nose is lemon zest and crushed lime leaf. Ripe peach, tropical fruit, and the essence of wet rocks fill out the palate. All with a refreshing acidity.
"Delicate scents of fresh grapefruit, white peaches and apples with a waft of baker’s yeast. Medium to full-bodied, the palate is laced with elegant stone fruit and savory toast and almond flavors, with a creamy texture and lively acid frame, finishing long. Quite closed at this youthful stage, I’ve been conservative with my judgment, but expect this will offer even more with another year or two in bottle." - Robert Parker
