Winemaker's Notes

There are aromas of apple, pear, butterscotch, toasted oak and a little minerality in the glass. The 2011 is richer than prior vintages with a creamy mouth-feel. There are tropical notes and flavors of apple, pear and citrus in the glass with just a touch of acidity on the finish.
