Winemaker's Notes

"On the nose, I get strong aromas of sweet scented pear, ripe red and golden delicious apple. There is a hint of tropical fruit with a touch of spice....hazelnut, cinnamon and graham. A faint aroma of apple blossom along with a touch of wet granite or stones. The rich flavors of ripe peaches dominates the mouth, along with a hint of juicy pear and tropical fruits that linger from the mid-palate. The finish is smooth, with traces of nutmeg and vanilla."
-Stephen Tebb, Winemaker

Food pairing: Seared scallops with a lemon-beurre sauce, dungeness crab with garlic and butter, pesto chicken and sautéed asparagus.
