(made from fruit grown in Sonoma, Monterey and Santa Barbara counties): Bright yellow-gold. Ripe orchard and pit fruit aromas are complemented by honey, toasty lees and ginger. Supple and open-knit, showing good depth to its nectarine and poached pear flavors. A bit loose-knit on the finish, leaving notes of vanilla and yellow apple behind.
Spicy, with white flower, peach, nectarine and honeydew flavors, delivered in a smooth, fleshy style, ending with a touch of citrus. Drink now. 22,000 cases made.-JL
