This vintage exhibits exotic floral scents of verbena and lavender, layered with notes of candied tropical fruit such as papaya and pineapple.
On the palate, the texture is focused from beginning to end, with a lingering, satisfying finish.
Fruit from both Hyde Vineyards in Carneros and our cooler parcels on the estate contribute to the complex, complete expression of this wine.
Bottled March 2014.
100% barrel fermented.
Aged surlies for 8 months in 65% new French oak.
It pairs nicely with Hawaiian specialties such as seared ahi tuna with pineapple salsa.
