Winemaker's Notes

Aroma: Kiwi, clove spice nectarine and lime zest with a hint of toasty oak.

Palate: Lush, mouth filling flavors of peach, apricot and papaya backed by vanilla and allspice.

Overall Impression: A super supple wine with a creamy, silky texture and vibrant, fresh fruit. Nicely balanced with a clean, satisfying finish.

Critical Acclaim

"Displaying good intensity, this is ripe and spicy, with green apple, mineral and subtle herb notes that end with a cleansing aftertaste. Drink now through 2013."
