Wine Review: This light yellow colored Rhone grape blend opens with a fragrant ripe pear bouquet with hints of vanilla oak. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied and round. The flavor profile is a mineral infused pear with notes of mild butterscotch and oak. The finish is dry and its flavors and acidity are nicely prolonged. This wine would pair well with spaghetti alla carbonara. Enjoy

Winemaker Notes: Exotic nose of spicy pears and white peaches, almond paste/marzipan, a touch of honeysuckle perfume. Multi-dimensional (many layers), a hard-to-describe range of aromatics, intriguing, almost mysterious! In the mouth it is crisply dry yet creamy and round and full-bodied, with nice almond paste on crisp-yet-juicy pear fruit.
