"90 Points" Wine Spectator, October 2011
Our cuvée is assembled from four excellent Columbia Valley vineyards which provide us an optimum range of fruit to achieve a complex, balanced flavor profile.
Refreshing stone fruit and tropical flavors of nectarine and pineapple combine with ripe cantaloupe, toasty caramel and vanilla creating a complex and intriguing white wine with a creamy long finish. The grapes are sourced from Lonesome Springs, Milbrandt Clifton, McKinley Springs, and Stillwater Creek Vineyards.
The wine pairs well with Asian spices, white meats, smoked fish and fruit salsa.
