NVWE Notes: This youthful wine already shows hints of of the finesse to come, in aromas that fan-out as a genteel perfume of ripe Bing cherry, black cherry, dark boysenberry, blood orange, raspberry coulis, red currant, Santa Rosa plum, orange peel tea, coriander seed, hazelnut and star anise. Sour cherry, black cherry and zesty plum hold center-stage on the palate and join some tannic grip to bring a piquant edge to the mouth-feel. The finish is full of sweet-natured, lingering fruit counter-pointed by drying notes of star anise and nut husk. Terrific now with seared duck breast, it should grow ever better for another five years and beyond. Another knockout by winemaker Paul Lato. 325 cases produced.

NVWE Notes: Vivid, fresh and forthcoming, the nose of this gorgeous Chardonnay pinpoints notes of green apple, fresh lime, pineapple core, lemon blossom, peach pit, vanilla wafer and hints of coconut cream and “river stone” minerality to produce a perfume that is both rich and elegant. The impression of chiseled focus is as evident on the palate, where feminine raciness tempers the intense fruit to streamline the mouth-feel. This is a vineyard famous for it’s rush of almost “weighty” tropical fruit, yet the finish of this wine rolls-out as a supple, gently piquant caress of sweet green apple, pear skin, lime, lemon, pineapple soufflé, vanilla wafer and baking-spice, above a background of nut husk and marzipan braced by low-key mineral undercurrents. Captivating now, if may be more so in a year or two. 70 cases made.
NVWE Notes: This luxuriously aromatic bottling seems drenched in fruit and spice, as a creamy perfume of sweet dried peach, pineapple soufflé, passion fruit, kumquat, green melon, key lime pie, lemon curd, lemon grass and white pepper surges from the glass. All that plush fruit is rendered in a more youthfully-coiled presentation on the palate, but its energy is just as impressive, as its dinner-worthiness is made obvious. If destined to improve for a year at minimum, it becomes lip-smacking delicious now, as soon as airing brings-forth its piquant rush of passion fruit, guava, papaya, peach, lime curd, white pepper, lemon grass, coriander seed, celery seed, white rose, vanilla and mineral flavors. 200 cases produced.
