Citrus driven nose. Hints of matchstick, pineapple, banana and coconut. Soft and round entry. Oak is apparent but not defining. Mid-palate goes on to reveal other layers of flavors—vanilla, lemon meringue pie, and again coconut. Finish is rich with viscosity that coats the mouth for minutes after your last sip.
Winemaker Charlie Wagner on Mer Soleil:
"Clean, pure, rich fig, tangerine and nectarine flavors are intense, well-balanced and full-bodied, taking on notes of honeysuckle and honeydew melon on the aftertaste. Drink now through 2014. 26,200 cases made."
