The nose boasts candied lemon peel and tangerine with hints of honeysuckle, yellow peach, and pear. Toasted Marcona almond strikes the palate with notes of grapefruit and jasmine. The mouthwatering acidity is perfectly balanced by the medium-bodied palate and a long finish, offering age-ability while being incredibly enjoyable now.

The 2021 growing season was preceded by a dry winter, with only one large storm system that provided considerable rainfall in February. A period of light rain in July also replenished the soil with much-needed moisture. While the summer season was marked by periodic heat waves, the weather cooled down by mid-August and remained that way through harvest. This cooling trend allowed the fruit to enjoy exceptional hang time. In the end, low yields and small berries provided wines with fine balance and vivid varietal flavors.
