Wine Review: This gold wine opens with a ripe pear like bouquet. On the palate, this medium bodied wine is round, has nice refreshing acidity, shows a little tartness, and has pear and citrus like flavors. The finish is dry and lingers a bit. The panel saw this wine going real well with lobster ravioli, linguine with clams, and ham with pineapple. Enjoy – KWGTP

Winemaker Notes: On the nose, aromas of apricots, figs, honey and spice fill the glass. A lingering finish has a touch of minerality, a signature characteristic of our vineyard. Enjoy with grilled halibut, lobster risotto or rosemary roasted chicken over the next five years. – Clay Brock, Winemaker
