A seductive and easy-pleasing wine, this ripe and lush beauty, named after the winemaker’s daughter, will draw you in with its sultry notes of ripe brambly berries, forest floor, cured meat, sweet smoke and spice.

A full-flavored and ripe selection, with decadent scents of sweet spice, whole vanilla bean and peanut skin that give depth to the ripe pear and melon fruit.
