TASTING NOTES

Another October harvest produced excellent varietal character with strong stone fruit aromas of apricot, nectarine, pear, peach and lemon citrus.  The palate is full and easy with balanced acidity and a dry, honeyed, peach and pear aftertaste that stays on the palate long after the initial taste.  The crisp acidity of this wine makes extended bottle ageing possible and its characteristic light kerosene aromas should be noticed within 2 to 3 years.
