Wine Review: This very pale white gold colored Rhone grape blend from the Tablas Creek opens with a Meyer lemon and chamomile tea bouquet with hints of bee’s wax, grilled pineapple, and honeysuckle. On the palate, this wine is medium plus bodied with integrated medium acidity. The mouthfeel is well-balanced, super smooth, supple, and elegant. The flavor profile is a very tasty mild chamomile tea and gentle saline blend with notes of chalky minerality, banana, and lemon verbena. We also detected some hints of white peach and almond. The finish is dry and its flavors drift away nicely. The Tasting Panel would drink it on its own with friends. With food pair this with a mild California roll sushi or crab legs. Enjoy - KWGTP

Winemaker Notes: An immediately appealing nose of poached pear and baked quince, vanilla custard, and nutmeg spice. On the palate, lovely and long, with Roussanne-driven flavors of beeswax and preserved lemon, rounded out by just a hint of sweet oak. Fresh and lifted, but long and textured. A charming Esprit Blanc that will be hard to resist young but which should also do beautifully with time in the cellar. Drink over the next two decades.
