Not quite Californian and not quite Burgundy. Has the steel tank of no oak like Burgundy and a touch of cream and butter like CA. A good presence of minerals.

This is a sensational wine. Clean bright fruit, minerality, terrific acidity, and minimal oak intervention. It showed way beyond expectation in a line up of sexy wines. A+

Very nice. Citrus, melon flavors with great acidity on the finish. Apperatif before Turkey.

Costco $14.99 - buy again, except it has a screw top so we don't to use our cool wine opener.
