Wine Review: On the nose, this wine opens with a light lemon like bouquet with a touch of oak. On the palate, this wine is clean, fresh, well balanced, and displays a forward lemon like flavors with hints of oak. This wine travels right down the middle between Burgundy and California. The finish is dry, has lingering light oak, and is brief. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: The engaging, floral aromas in this vintage are reminiscent of gardenia and jasmine, but also of Meyer lemon and stone fruit, like white peach. The mouthfeel is creamy and fleshy, rounded up by a note of lees and the subtle hint of French oak that carefully frames the elegant fruit. A note of vanilla bean and spice elevates the wine and lengthens the finish, which will still develop for a long time.
