For a variety with little identity in California, this one has plenty of personality. It’s nutty and creamy, with detailed flavors of citrus rind and peach and a rich, but balancing, overlay of oak. It’s also very dry with good acidity.
Distinctly cola-like in the nose, this over-the-top jammy style isn’t the best advertisement for the varietal. Ultra-bright and zippy, with plummy, blackberry flavors and acidity that shocks. Not for everyone.
