Honeyed yellow in color the nose is rich sultanas crossed with sweet, ripe mango and Crenshaw melon. The soft and viscous mouthfeel leads to delicate jasmine blossom, mandarin orange and honey-vanilla notes that transition with a long, lingering and focused finish.
Balanced and complex, this wine is drinkable now, but should age nicely for another 10 or more years.
Perfect for bolder fish or chicken dishes accompanied by sauces. Also beautifully complements plainer fish, chicken or vegetarian dishes.

Situated in the most southwest corner of Sonoma County, less than 5 miles from Tomales Bay and just north of the Marin line, this vineyard sits beneath Antonio Mountain. Planted in 1991 by an old dairy family in western Sonoma County, this was an early Sonoma Coast vineyard. It is a very cool climate site that grows stunning Chardonnay and Pinot Noir.
