- This interesting and complex nose has aromas of cooked apple and ripe pear. There are also notes of butter and toast which are nicely integrated. A very fine, elegant wine with excellent balance, purity and density.
- Grapes are sourced from 25 different vineyards with similar terroir and exposure. Harvested by hand early, to preserve freshness and purity. Vinified and aged on the lees in small oak barrels (15% new) for 10 months. Further aged in stainless steel for 4-9 months. Lightly fined, non-filtered. The vineyard has been herbicide free since 1998.
- “Here's a dense and well-balanced wine that cries out for seafood. Look for a vibrant nose, with hints of peach, apple, pear and wood spice. An attractive medley of ripe fruit, spice and buttery and toasty French oak nuances carry through on the palate. It has good weight and acidity, with evident follow-through on the finish. In all, a well-made combination of fruit layers and integrated barrel influence.” 90 points - Wine Access, Jeff Davis
