Clear, bright medium gold in the glass. Floral, tropical (banana, ripe mango), spiced honey nose. Full body on the palate with moderate, warm climate acidity. Banana cream, beeswax, spiced honey, dried apple...were these grapes botrytized? White Rhône from California can be a dream and this wine is the dreamiest. Drink now or through 2019.
Showing a bit of oxidation, this had bruised apple, beeswax, nectarine, and tropical fruit flavors and aromas. The acid is well integrated and helps hold together the wines ripe flavors. Probably near its peak.
