Napa Valley, California
The nose draws you in immediately with tropical, pineapple guava character followed by a floral note, flinty, with lemon zest, custard, honeysuckle, pound cake on the palate, finishing with a saline component. The palate walks the line between generous fruit and zippy acidity. The finish is energetic and with hints of toasted nuts and fresh cream.
Very food-friendly and will go well with most dishes, from appetizers to soups to main courses. Try it with a just-picked spring lettuce and fresh herb salad, or with a mature, delicate brie cheese.
