Tasting notes

"A big, open-textured style, featuring richly spiced ripe white fruit flavors..."

Wine Spectator | Rated 92

From its alluring aromatic entry to its persistent mineral-laden finish, the 2018 vintage shows impressive symmetry and delineation. Honeycrisp apple and Bosc pear flavors are energized by clean, bright layers of tangy citrus and stony minerality— lemon blossom, kumquat, Gravenstein apple, and apricot.
