Banana, mango, papaya, caramel, butter, honeysuckle, even hockey pockey ice cream. An apparent sweetness, lack of acid and average length.

Gold color with aromas of buttery pineapple, crème brûlée, passion fruit, and mango. There's butter and oak on the palate, too, with notes of tropical fruit and moderate acidity. The finish has notes of piney resin—that mango thing again. This is a big, glossy wine, appealing to those who like the plush style of CA Chardonnay. 13.5% abv | sample
