Winemaker's Notes

With a color of brilliant honey and golden straw, this wine brings aromas of ripe Gravenstein apple, ghee, oak veneer, dried mango, sweet baked almond and crushed pineapple. On the tongue, flavors of poached pears, Bananas Foster, ground nutmeg, first touch of warm beach sand, olive oil and sweet lemon zest.

Critical Acclaim

"Intense, tight and focused, this is firm with spicy green apple, honeysuckle and honeydew melon flavors that are rich and concentrated. Drink now through 2015."
