Description

"Smashed lemon rinds, sandalwood oil, split pine logs and a touch of toast show on the nose of this bottling from the historic vineyard. It’s fresh on the palate with a sharp citrusy edge, which cuts through the fuller bodied midpalate flavors of pineapple and melon." ~ Wine Enthusiast 

"Well-concentrated apple, pear and melon flavors are flanked by creamy and spicy accents, with savory notes emerging on the fresh, crunchy finish.~ Wine Spectator
