Extraordinary,
Ultimate Recommendation

Tasting Notes:

Toasted brioche and a distinct chalky note brings one almost to Burgundy, but the power and concentration of Sonoma fruit bring us back to California. Ripe cider apples and honeydew play the canvas with hues of white flower, sweet cream butter, and fresh vanilla bean.
