Tasting Notes

Characteristic aromas of grapefruit, citrus, and red delicious apple greet the nose.

This leads into flavors of lemongrass and a bit of dried apricot with a clean, crisp finish.

Wine Enthusiast

“This wine opens in racy high-toned acidity and evolves to show a creamier lusher texture and style. Peach, lime and green-apple flavors develop around a moderate structure that refreshes and finishes dry.”

During the growing season of 2018 there was an increased amount of rainfall in our Sonoma Carneros estate vineyards during the spring followed by occasional heat spikes during the early summer. Harvest began about two weeks later than in previous years but was more in line with timing from the years before the drought. The yields were extremely high and the fruit quality was excellent.
