Nose

toasted brioche and vibrant stone fruit

Palate

white pear and toasted almonds, hint of vanilla crème brûlée lingers.

Growing Conditions

“Early and Oh So Excellent” were the watchwords for this nearly perfect growing season. A moderately warm spring without frost complications evolved through a summer season absent heat spikes and an early harvest before the Fall rains. The resulting wines are flavorful, complex and aromatic with wonderful balance.

Food Pairing

fresh oysters and caviar. Or try a soft-nutty cheese, like a locally sourced goat cheese.
