Winemakers Notes

Roasted almonds, mineral and citrus blossom dominate the aromas in this wine. The extended barrel aging gives this wine a more expansive mouth feel that is creamier and lusher texture with a citrus/toffee element on the palate. The crisp acidity gives this wine a sweet Meyer lemon flavor with a hint of mineral in the finish.
—Winemaker Bob Cabral

Harvest Notes

Challenging weather during the 2003 growing season resulted in lighter than normal berry development. However lower yields, coupled with moderate temperatures, allowed for even ripening with good sugar, pH and acidity. Although Mother Nature provided us with a less than bountiful harvest, we are very pleased with the resulting wines. The grapes for this wine were harvested at an average of 25.4 Brix in late October.
