Review

Medium-light golden yellow color; attractive, intense, pear and green apple aroma with notes of minerality; full body; big, rich, plush, citrus and green apple flavors with crisp acidity and a pleasing, slightly creamy mouthfeel; well balanced and firmly structured; lingering aftertaste. Shows distinctive varietal character with well integrated fruit and oak. Should continue to develop with several more years of aging. Very highly recommended.
