    Chilled before drinking. Clear, oat straw color with a tiny amount of green tint. Interesting aromas including ripe melon, apricot, pineapple, sweet spices and lemon. Velvety smooth, dense, dusty, with a slightly creamy and oily mouthfeel, medium to full body and a 150-grit texture. A huge potpourri of flavors: ripe apple, melon, tart quince, apricot, white pepper and hints of honey. An abundance of bright, we’ll balanced acidity and a long bitter apple and apricot tasting finish that goes on and on with a VERY, VERY long bitter aftertaste. Well, all the rich fruit tastes in juxtaposition with the striking bitterness is both appealing and repugnant; however in the end we were both positive about the tastes. It’s also a big and bold California wine and were not used to this stouthearted character in Rhone white wine. With all that said we thought it was a showstopper with extraordinary spunky tastes and mouthfeel.
