Distinct aromas of ginger and lemon zest are joined by tasty coconut, melon and caramel alongside a mineral, flinty cedar chest oakiness overlaid by notes of honeysuckle. Well-balanced with a solid acid backbone, the wine is rich medium-heavy with a broad, yet firm, mid-palate. The long, lingering finish displays a touch of spice and lively acidity. Flavors of lemon, apple, pear, pineapple and cantaloupe - Sonoma's sull cornucopia of fruit -join a nutty, spicy, lightly oaky profile. Fermented in oak and undergoing complete malolactic fermentation, the wine shows a mature influcence by older vines and promises to evolve over time, bringing joy to both winemaker and those lucky enough to savor a glass.
