Cedar box, oak, and apple aromas. There's a good freshness from the acidity here with grapefruit flavors and a hint of sweetness. A very tasty wine that would be great with cheese.

Golden hue. Appears oxygen is getting the best of this wine (unsure how well it was kept prior to my purchase). Rather odd aroma of wet grains, like beer wort. A savory cashew, pistachio nuttiness. Guava, dried pineapple and quince paste on the nose as well. Pear tart, toasted brioche, heavy baking spices especially nutmeg on the palate. Very toasty and smoky with a powerful fatty nut quality. It truly is like liquid cashews with only slight suggestions of tree fruit. Big for sipping on its own, but unsure what I'd pair it with except maybe vanilla ice cream. Recommend you drink right away unless cellared all along. 80 pts. 5/23/13

Marked by tangy nectarine and tangerine flavors, with a touch of green apple and pineapple, this is crisp, flinty and intense, with a long, cleansing, leesy finish.

Wonderful tropical and pear aromas with fresh pineappleand lemon with spice notes and a hint of Dry Creek minerality that lingers through the mouth and into a rich and refreshing finish.

Good yellow-gold color. Slightly high-toned aromas and flavors of tropical fruits, apricot, vanilla and honey; hints of botrytis here. Plump, broad and sweet, with a strong component of spicy, vanillin oak. The lingering finish turns more classicall... Stephen Tanzers IWC.

Winemaker's Notes:

About one mile from Dry Creek. this thirteen-acre vineyard benefits from temperatures. that are a bit cooler than most of the appellation. It makes wine that's very aromatic with nice bright fruit. pear and lemon and a bit of minerality on the finish.
