VinoUS Media Review
Light brilliant yellow. Tangerine, pear nectar and honeysuckle on the seductively perfumed nose, complicated by smoky lees and buttered toast nuances. Sappy, palate-staining orchard and citrus fruit and brioche flavors carry notes of candied ginger and fennel. Finishes with excellent clarity, breadth and smoky persistence, leaving a suggestion of poached pear behind. (Josh Raynolds)
Wine Tasting Notes
The aromas are very complex yet fruit forward. Look for fruit aromas of limetta and white peach with spices of cinnamon and high-elevation grown Sikotak clove. All this excitement is wrapped up with a hint of fresh baked pecan pie. The flavor is a great definition of power and grace. Ripe fruit of limetta blossom, pear, white-peach with a hint of green Spanish olive abound. The structure is classic cool, maritime late ripening mineral, rocky acidity, while the finish is a beautifully long essence of Anjou pear brioche.
