Wine Review: This white gold colored Rhone grape blend from California is very good. It opens with a fragrant peach and golden delicious apple bouquet. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, balanced and round in the mouth. The flavor profile is a vanilla infused pear with notes of apricot and honeysuckle. I also detected a touch of oak towards the end. The finish is dry and its flavors drift away nicely. This wine is food friendly and would pair well with grilled halibut. Enjoy – Ken
Winemaker Notes: Exotic nose of spicy pears and white peaches, almond paste/marzipan, a touch of honeysuckle perfume. Multi-dimensional (many layers), a hard-to-describe range of aromatics, intriguing, almost mysterious! In the mouth it is crisply dry yet creamy and round and full-bodied, with nice almond paste on crisp-yet-juicy pear fruit.
