Winemaker's Notes

Color: Translucent, pale straw.

Nose: An intensely perfumed fresh bouquet of pink grapefruit and lemon cream combines with energetic spice notes, underlined by invigorating minerality.

Flavor: Emulating the nose, the palate of crisp citrus and melon flavor carries a hint of dry white herb accompanied by a soft, round mouthfeel resulting in a medium bodied, fresh, food-friendly wine.

Critical Acclaim

"Clear to platinum in color, this wine has the scent of green-apple skin, a tight jacket surrounding plump fruit flavors. The fruit has the weight and gravity of a peach ready to fall from the tree - fully ripe rather than superripe. The acidity in the finish will wrap around grilled sea scallops."

The atmosphere of Sonoma is decidedly laid back and down home country style. But in wines, they are keeping up with the...
