This California white blend is very tasty, and is drinking beautifully now.
Deep gold in color.
Full bodied with medium plus acidity.
Showing red and green apples, light oak, Mediterranean spices, bitter herbs, earth, light vanilla, caramel and black pepper.
Long finish with almonds and limes.
Nicely balanced with a nice mouthfeel. Crisp and engaging.
This 9-year-old still has lots of acidity to take it another 5 to 10 years. A Delicious wine.

2002. Wow. Beautiful and elegant. Only 10% abv according to the label but I’d guess higher. Petrol, honey, Corn Pops cereal, dill, mandarin oranges, golden raisin. This is amazing. — 10 days ago
