Tropical fresh fruit aromas and a hint of buttered biscuit set the stage for a rich and complex palate to follow. Flavors of white peach and Meyer lemon are balanced by a chalky minerality and supple texture. Flavors of vanilla and toast linger with the creamy finish. This wine pairs well with sautéed scallops and roasted chicken.
The 2010 year began with average rainfall followed by a very warm spring which enhanced fruit set. The summer and fall months were the coolest on record leading to an exceptionally long growing season. A six day heat spell in mid-September finished the ripening. Yields in the Arroyo Grande Valley were average and the grapes had lower sugar levels and perfectly developed flavors.
