Slightly hazy medium yellow (all these wines are bottled without fining or filtration).  Exotic, leesy aromas of lemon curd, pineapple, butter, tropical fruits and licorice.  Youthfully aggressive on the palate, with a pineapple flavor framed by brisk acidity and complicated by flowers and salty minerality.  Finishes with notes of peach nectar and toasted graham cracker.  I find this a bit youthfully disjointed today.  New winemaker Josh Widaman began working here in 2008 and will vinify for the first time in 2012.
