Its medium gold color is followed by a rich, upfront bouquet of Caramelized pineapple, tangerine, honeysuckle, spice, and a touch of toasted nuts. It's rich, concentrated, has beautiful mid-palate heft, and nicely integrated acidity. It's a rocking wine as well as a great introduction into the wines of this great winemaker.

Dried apricots, mangoes, apricot pie and spices. Medium-bodied with layers of stone and even tropical fruit, bright acidity and a medium-long finish. So well defined and focused. Drink now.

The palate is medium to full-bodied, rounded and silky with intense, savory flavor layers and bright acidity kicking in on long the finish. 5,964 cases produced. - EB
