Winemaker's Notes:

#40 Wine Spectator Top 100 of 2011

Gamble Ranch is a vineyard that consistently delivers rich, ripe fruit flavors. Aromas of butterscotch, lemon curd, and toasted almonds evolve into rich tropical flavors. The rich, luscious mouthfeel is perfectly balanced by bright citrus notes.
