Notes from the Winemaker:
Pale yellow with a green tinge to the hue. Aromas of yellow peach, mango with a slight citrus note intertwine seamlessly with vanilla and spice. The palate is rich and round, with the mango and vanilla fighting for the lime light, while the cream texture, vanilla and slight butter combine seamlessly. The balanced acidity closes out the finish bringing the multiple components into balance.
The grapes were gently whole-cluster pressed while the fruit was still cool.
The juice was pumped to tank to cold-settle overnight before it was racked to barrel for primary and malolactic fermentation. The lees were stirred every two weeks to give the wine rich flavors and a creamy texture.
The fruit for this wine comes from vineyards in the Carneros region owned by the Rombauer family and select growers including the Sangiacomo family, long-term grower partners who have farmed this land for three generations.
Ratings & Reviews
Rich, with marzipan, cream soda and buttery pastry notes to complement marmalade and apricot preserves. Packs generous nutmeg-based spice flavors, with sleek acidity keeping all the elements in focus and balancing the candied accents. Drink now.
92 Points - Wine Enthusiast: (2021 Vintage)
A toasty, spicy aroma leads to ripe apple, pear and nutmeg flavors in this friendly, full-bodied wine. It offers a mouth-filling richness, persistent fruit and baking-spice flavors and a lingering finish. JIM GORDON
