Slightly heavy, but very smooth and a bit crisp.
My first taste at the winery we stayed at in Napa. This series is part of a wine/cheese pairing at Franciscan. The aromas are very green and herbal, floral and citrus but underlying green fruit notes on the palate, green apples, grapefruit and lime, easy drinking with a light finish. Tasted with a goat cheese which helped with the acidity of the wine.
