A good portion of the 2007 blend is from Gamble Ranch, a vineyard that has consistently
delivered such rich, ripe fruit flavors. There's a richness in this wine that is wonderfully balanced by a bright citrus note. A sweet oak note weaves together the many layers of aroma and flavor, carrying through to the finish. This wine is always a pleasure to make and equally pleasurable to drink.
"Pale gold hue. Forward bouquet of peach, apricot, oak and warm caramel. Well structured and flinty with layers of peach and cinnamon flavors. Lengthy finish with apple butter-like sweetness."
