This 20th anniversary release is a zippy, sassy fruit bomb of a wine. Apple cider, a squirt of grapefruit, and plenty of juicy acidity push the flavors forward and keep the mouthfeel fresh and lively. Drink now–2020. PAUL GREGUTT
Budbreak was in early April followed by bloom in late June. The sunny growing season gave way to cool showers in early September. A little extra hang time, then harvested October 2nd on a cool, foggy day. Beautiful balance, with pear and white floral aromas. The complexity added by 15% neutral barrels suggests dried apricot, with a creamy mid-palate complementing the crisp finish.
