Only the first pressing of select Carneros grapes is used to craft this wine. Then the wine is aged in our underground caves for more than eight years with a blend of Pinot Noir (67%) and Chardonnay (33%).
The nose begins with honey, ripe apple and peach. These characters continue into the mouth adding pear and black cherry in background. The mouthfeel is full offset by bright acidity continuing into a crisp finish with a touch of fresh ginger.
The vivid acidity and stone fruit rich flavors of this special cuvée, compliments a variety of dishes from sweet to savory. Pair with grilled shrimp tacos with peach salsa or glazed honey sesame chicken. Wild rice salad with feta, parsley and dried Bing cherries complete lighter main dishes. Also compliments a wide selection of soft cheeses such as La Tur and even fresh chévre.
