Winemaker's Notes

Classic in spirit, seeking the aromatic elegance of a wine that evolves and improves with time in bottle, and that proves enveloping and concentrated on the palate.

Critical Acclaim

"Pale yellow. Spicy pear and melon aromas are complicated by notes of dusty minerals and honeysuckle. Silky and gently sweet on entry, then tighter in the mid-palate, offering lively citrus and orchard fruit flavors and a touch of white pepper. The floral note repeats on the firm, focused finish, which shows very good clarity and persistence. "
