Deep green-gold color and impressively ripe aromas has good concentration followed by a lasting finish. The nose has focus as well as intensity, with fruit notes of Bosc pear, Fuji apple, white peach and lemon curd comingling with scents of nutmeg, vanilla custard and roasted grain. On the palate it proves as rich as expected, with fresh apple, nutmeggy custard, pear and mineral flavors carry through to the lingering finish. Ready to drink, it deserves service with richly flavored meals.
This wine was recently featured in The California Wine Club's wine of the month club.
