Wine Spectator Top 100 of 2007!
Making a white wine from a red grape requires great care – handpicked fruit, early morning harvest, optimal fruit maturity and delicate pressing. A balance of bright flavors, crisp acidity and minimal tannins is achieved. Three years of yeast contact knits all the elements together in a mature, toasty style.
"A rich, vibrant mouthful of a bubbly, with bold, complex aromas of cinnamon, yeasty vanilla, apple and cherry, with subtle spicy flavors that build to a fresh hint of minerality on the finish. Drink now through 2010."
