Tasting Notes

Subtle floral notes with hints of honey and golden apple open to complex flavors of apple and mandarin.

A touch of ginger and a meringue mouthfeel lead to a long and crisp finish.

The 2010 vintage will be remembered as one of the coolest growing seasons on record. This cool weather during bloom caused the vines to set a light crop and continuing through the growing season slowed the ripening of the grapes. This resulted in a harvest delayed by several weeks without a drop in acid. The combination of a light crop and extra hang time on the vines produced fruit of excellent concentration and character.
