The wine is elegant. It leads with aromas of honeysuckle, orange blossom and faint notes of lemon meringue pie. Its mid-palate is rich but well defined by signature Russian River acidity. Flavors in the mouth include apple, baked pear, lemon drop candy – and crystallized ginger which drives the wine's long finish. Vineyards from the Middle Reach provide the wine's floral nose. Green Valley brings citrus, nice acidity, lemon drop candy and Gravenstein apple flavors, and the Laguna Ridge the flavors of baked pear and crystallized ginger.
