Top Notes For
Sipping Fine Wine

A blend of 89% Semillon and 11% Sauv Blanc, fermented 6 months in oak, aged for 3 years. Medium amber color with aromas of ripe sweet fruits and orange honey botrytis notes. On the palate rich flavors of ripe peaches and figs with vanilla notes. Long finish ending with sweet fruit notes. Tasting well now, but still has room to age. I have a few bottles tucked away. Nice!

Holy shit...Really? Is it it a local law that you have to drink crazy awesome wine in Napa? So sure it's for desert but trust me; this was for all occasions.

Exceptional flavor and body. Starting to show a little age, but still acidic and lively. Drinking well now, but best with a little time after opening. Honey, apricot and fig on the palette.

Golden honey coloration. Beautifully bottled. On the nose, butterscotch, citrus and vanilla. On the palate, apricot and butterscotch dominate, initially giving way to honeysuckle through a long sweet finish. Beautiful balance of sweetness and acidity. The texture is silky smooth. Great dessert wine.

Smooth as silk or gold? This beautiful 2005 was an elegant compliment to desert with good acid balancing the sweetness
