The wine is two-thirds Pinot Noir which produces a red fruit (cherry and plum) forward nose combined with one-third Chardonnay which adds the tropical expression of lychee nut and mango. The 100% malolactic fermentation adds a vanilla cream character producing a round and full-bodied wine. After approximately two years on the yeast lees, there are notes of freshly baked bread and pastry that enhances the more fruit forward style of the wine. Finally, after several months on the cork the wine develops caramel and hazel complexors.

Wine Enthusiast- Dry, appetizing and complex, this wine has intricate aro¬mas of butter, almond and toast followed by mellow fruit flavors, lingering spices and a suave texture that seems to encourage the long finish. It’s light-to medium-bodied and excellent in overall quality. Editors’ Choice. —J.G.

Wine SpectatorFresh and easygoing, with aromas of green apple and fennel and crisp, lively citrus, mineral and toasty vanilla flavors that finish on a creamy note. Drink now.
