Description

The delicate, persistent bubbles and straw color with a hint of salmon are harbingers of great things to come. You will detect hints of brioche, ginger and lemon rind on the nose. The palate offers up gorgeous citrus and tangerine flavors tempered by mineral notes and a delicious yeasty/pastry dough element as a result of extended time laying en tirage. 

"...It’s a beautiful wine and certainly one of the finest I’ve tasted from the central coast. Apple blossom, white flowers, brioche and hints of toasted bread all emerge from this clean, nicely textured and balanced beauty that’s a joy to drink." ~ Jeb Dunnuck
