"Lavish hints of oak spice and lime blossom make an aromatic entry for this vibrant, medium- to full-bodied white, accenting the silky palate of nectarine, toast point and candied Meyer lemon zest flavors that linger on the finish. Chardonnay and Grechetto. Drink now through 2024. 1,500 cases imported. -Alison Napjus" (WS)

"This is big and powerful, without being ripe and heavy. So much apple, stone, and hints of toffee. Aromatic. Full-bodied, layered and framed with phenolic tension and a great finish. Muscular and agile at the same time. One of the best I have tasted. Drink or hold." (JS)
