Winemaker's Notes:

Flavors of apple and pears complement the soft vanilla oak profile and crme brulee-like finish.

You can’t make great wine from mediocre grapes. Lake Sonoma Winery is dedicated to creating the ultimate expression of our Sonoma sub-appellation vineyards. Quality over quantity is our guide.

Oaky on the nose, with plenty of toasted almond and vanilla but there’s plenty of fruit here as well with nice notes of nectarine, pineapple and lime, and a nice note of licorice root. A bit fat and slightly creamy but at the same time this sits rather high on the palate exhibiting lovely definition and a nice bit of cut. The flavors are just a touch indistinct but well balanced with the oak sitting just below the fruit. The backend shows really nice tension and the fruit begins to pop leaving a nice wash of nectarine and lime on the moderately long finish. This is really lovely, lacks a bit around the edges but it is a nicely complete wine. 90pts
