Meyer lemon, lime and tangerine provide a crisp fresh backdrop of inviting flavor that meets floral companionship in apple blossom aromas and a hint of lemongrass on the lengthy finish.

It has that rare mix of richness and elegance as well as flawless balance and a great finish. Brought up in 40% new French oak, it too is going to drink brilliantly for 7-8 years, if not longer.

Aged 15 months in 40% new French oak, it comes bounding out of the glass with sit-up-and-beg notes of pineapple upside-down cake, creme brûlée and orange blossoms over a core of lemon meringue pie and ripe peach plus a waft of lime leaves. Medium to full-bodied, the palate is packed with a complex array of citrus and stone fruit layers, finishing with bold freshness and fantastic length. 125 cases produced. - LPB
