Winemaker's Notes:

This wine is a classic California – clean, fresh, and oak-influenced. It has a rich texture that is big, round and creamy, and balanced with the hallmark Sonoma-Cutrer acidity. Aromas of caramel, nougat, honey and butterscotch are accented with ginger, cinnamon, peach and baked apple. Flavors of ripe peaches and toasted nuts are layered with caramel, toasty oak and subtle hints of spice.
