By carefully sourcing fruit from the Carneros and Atlas Peak regions in Napa Valley, this wine achieved a balance between vibrant and soft.

100% barrel fermented.
Aged surlies 7 months in 50% new French oak.
On the palate, the combined effect allows this wine to be paired with a wide array of foods, including rich pasta dishes such as ricotta ravioli in lemon cream sauce, or as an opener with a cream-based sweet summer corn bisque.
