(made from old Wente clone fruit drawn from three vineyards: 60% from Ritchie and 20% each from Lorenzo and Searby; 50% new oak, no battonage): Vivid gold. Powerful aromas of orchard and pit fruits, honey and lemon curd, with a spicy topnote. Dense, smooth and expansive, with impressive volume to its ripe pear and nectarine flavors and a bright note of bitter citrus pith. Ripe and pliant but also shows excellent energy and finishes with strong thrust and mineral cut.
