There is a tea-smoke richness to the ripe fruit honey and slightly nutty aromas of this complex wine yet despite the fullness that comes as an unmistakable part of this wine's makeup it is quite well-balanced and alive from entry to finish and adds in a citrusy note at the end. It will make entirely satisfactory drinking in the near term but it has more to offer over time and a few years of quiet cellaring will be worth the wait. Limited production and/or limited geographic distribution.Full and balanced dry white. Try with rich seafood and fowl dishes.Drinkable now. Further bottle aging can improve this wine.


Winemaker's Notes:

Careful hand sorting and whole cluster pressing. Fermentation with indigenous, native yeasts accompanied by regular battonage until the completion of the malolactic fermentation in the spring of 2005. At the end of barrel aging the wine was gently inert gas-racked to tank for settling.

Tasting Notes:

Brilliant, slightly straw color. Citrus aromas of lime and lemon-butter followed by subtle notes of clove and vanilla bean. Fruit flavors and honey on entry complimented by round mouth-feel and defined CMR minerality leading to a long, complex finish. This wine spent 11 months in barrel and an additional year at the winery in bottle prior to this release. Drinking impressively now and will continue to develop.
