"A rich, ripe and fruity style, with luscious flavors of apple and peach pastry that show tropical fruit notes. Plush and buttery on the open-textured finish. Drink now through 2023. 12,000 cases made. -K.M." (WS)

"Shimmering yellow. Fresh citrus and tropical fruit aromas and flavors take on a spicy aspect with air. Juicy and seamless in texture, showing good depth and a subtle floral quality that emerges with air. Clings nicely on the lively finish, which features suggestions of white peach, pineapple and Meyer lemon." (VM)

"Tight aromas of Meyer lemon rind, dried melon and salted nuts show on the nose of this appellation blend. There's a strong acidic kick to the palate, where hints of warm honeysuckle and tangy lemon are both rich and tart. -Matt Kettmann" (WE)

Winery Notes:
Lively aromas of citrus and apple with hints of ripe tropical fruit and vanilla. On the palate, this wine is full-bodied with a viscous round mouthfeel and balanced acidity. Flavors of lemon and vanilla combined with delicate butter notes lead to an elegant long finish.
