Taste

The senses are overwhelmed by lush, tropical aromas of banana, grilled pineapple and honeysuckle, accented by subtle notes of caramel. Full on the palate with nice acidity, the tropical nose is echoed in rich flavors of ripe banana cream pie and baked stone fruit balanced with light minerality and toasty oak. Lingering, slightly buttery finish.

About the Appellation

Sonoma County
Virtually all great winegrowing regions are situated by water, which has a moderating effect on climatic extremes. With approximately sixty miles of rugged Pacific coastline and the mighty Russian River winding its way inland, the whole region is blessed with mild, Mediterranean conditions: Warm, sunny days and cool, foggy nights which allow for slow, even maturation, optimal flavor development and ideal sugar to acid balance.
