Expert Reviews

Wine Enthusiast (2017)90 pts

This wine interlaces a light buttery-oak nuance with vibrant, appealing fruit flavors. It's medium weight yet fresh, with a smooth, well-balanced palate that displays a harmonized mix of savory oak and citrus nuances.

Handcrafted in small vineyard lots throughout the entire winemaking process. Whole cluster pressed to retain the fresh fruit qualities without the bitterness from stems and seeds. Barrel aged for 7 months in French and American oak for richness, toastiness and complexity. Sur lie aging for our signature velvety texture and creamy flavor. We stir these important lees 1-2 times per month.
