A wonderful wine from an extremely cool area of the Russian River Valley, this vintage reminds me of great Chablis, with aromas of mineral, citrus blossom, Asian pear and roasted almond. In the creamy mouthfeel, flavors of Meyer lemon, wet stone and sweet oak fill your palate. The naturally high acidity gives this wine a long, lemon drop-like finish that would complement Thai food. A wine that will definitely benefit from 4-6 years of cellaring.
"Bright yellow. A powerful bouquet evokes ripe pear, peach skin, toasted nuts, lemon rind and floral honey. Nicely concentrated orchard and pit fruit flavors are complemented by suggestions of anise, iodine and toasted nuts, with a spicy note adding back-end bite. The clinging finish shows a creamy, buttery quality and a sexy floral nuance."
