As I've gotten older I've become more enamored with crisp and full-flavored white wines which have a nice long finish. Unlike so many others, this wine does all that and more. You really can't beat it for the price. It's wonderful as an aperitif or accompanying raw shellfish especially oysters. I'm glad I purchased a case of it.

WA 90pts. - Winemaker Notes - The 2009 vintage was predominately fermented in stainless steel to retain the citrus and tropical fruit aromatics while the balance was barrel fermented in French and American oak to increase the mouthfeel and develop flavors of white peach and honeydew melon. We also use a clone of Sauvignon Blanc called Sauvignon Musque to add a hint of orange blossom and tangerine and, for the first time ever, we blended in some estate Semillon. The Semillon adds wonderful floral notes and nice texture.

Inviting aromas of black cherry and thyme deliver a wine with rich flavors of blackberry jam, nutmeg and dark fruit. The blend was aged in small oak cooperage to polish the soft tannins and complement the finish with a sweet toastiness.
