Winemaker Notes:
This stylish wine is a blend of selected lots from two of our estate vineyards which include four distinct clones; some old California and some more recent importations from Burgundy. The grapes were crushed directly into the press and only the free run and lightest press fractions went into this wine. The wine is complex with layers of strawberry crème, raspberry and peach, floral notes of white blossoms and a fruity core of red berries. It is brilliant with crisp acidity and a smooth mouth feel.
