Winemaker's Notes:

The wine is pale straw in color with attractive green hues. Classic Russian River green apple, pear and citrus blossom characters accented by subtle smoky vanillin oak are the hallmarks of the nose. The palate is the perfect marriage of fruit and oak with balancing natural acidity and a long flavorsome finish. The wine also has a wonderfully creamy texture, which has been enhanced by not only lees stirring, but the dominant use of water-bent American oak barrels.

Its outstanding team of winemakers and viticulturalists are noted for fruit-forward, food-friendly wines from prime vineyard sources in the Alexander Valley.
