This 100% stainless steel tank fermented wine comes from older vines within the Russian River Valley. The cold fermentation produces aromas of ripe peaches, white nectarines, citrus blossom and fresh baked bread. It is dry on the palate, with refreshing flavors of pears, white peaches, mineral and Meyer lemons. The invigorating acidity and creamy textures provide this wine with the capacity to pair with a range of savory entrees or cheese appetizers. Wonderful now, but will get better in 2-3 years!
"Pale yellow. Pungent, spice-tinged bouquet evokes lemon curd, anise, lime zest and quince, with a hint of smokiness in the background. I'd have guessed that some oak was in play here, and I'd have been wrong. Fresh and nervy on the palate, offering vivid citrus fruit and pear flavors that put on weight with air. A refreshingly bitter note of quinine adds bite to the emphatically dry finish, which clings with good spicy tenacity."
