"Frankly herbal in flavor, this wine smells reduced at first, like garlic and onions, but mellows to celery, cucumber and lemon on the palate. It's medium to full in body, has a rich texture and lingering veggie finish." (WE)

Winery Notes:
Vintage 2016 had near perfect weather and continues the streak of great California vintages. Winter gave us our average amount of rainfall followed by a warm spring that allowed most varieties to set a nice crop. August cooled things off and allowed some increase in hang time and we didn’t see any major heat spikes during September and October. We would definitely take a repeat performance with the growing season for 2017!
