Tasting Notes

This blend of top Russian River Valley vineyards displays a brilliant golden color and aromas of white flowers, baked pear tart, nectarine and toasted almond shortbread. The palate is full-bodied with flavors of Asian guava and key lime. The lengthy finish and bright acidity leaves you asking for more.
