Winemaker's Notes:

"Very pretty aromas of jasmine and rose petal come quickly back to more expected tropical fruits like pineapple, mango and a bit of pear. Roasted hazelnut is joined with nougat and almond butter, finishing with a touch of lime and lichee. The wine is medium weight, clean with a wonderful acid backbone, and it expands from your first sip to your last, offering flavors of citrus, grapefruit, lemon, pear and kumquat, with subtle vanilla bean and a bit of herbal mushroom, with a lingering, memorable finish with hints of minerality and apple, lime and a surprisingly wonderful touch of strawberry. It's a market basket of flavors, and one I know you'll enjoy."
-Terry Adams, Winemaker
