The wine has a brilliant straw color with seductive aromas of wild thyme, fresh oregano, Meyer lemon and seckel pear. The flavors are sharply focused, bright yet expansive with an amazing balance of lemon, pear, fresh herbs and a slight kiss of very pretty French oak that dance together to create a mesmerizingly complex wine that balances on the razors edge between lean/crisp and opulent/effusive. The long lingering finish brings you back for another sip, another glass, another bottle.
Ample spices, butter and ripe fruits in the aroma lead to a rich palate of poached pears, almonds and a touch of butterscotch in this full bodied, affordable wine.
