WINEMAKERS TASTING NOTES AND COMMENTS
The wine comes from “Villa San Juliette” vineyard, located on the northeast side of the Paso Robles appellation. These mature vines are grown on a limestone hillside soil also benefiting from a southern exposure. The 2006 growing season started with an extended cool spring weather. Then an ideal, long, temperature growing season followed, allowing for slow, full and even ripening of the fruit. The harvest began later than usual. As a result, the wine can be characterized as rich and elegant with gorgeous aromatics. The pale straw color is subtle and pure. The nose is fresh, flinty and the wine expresses tropical notes of ripe peaches and agrumes. The wine is balanced by mineral acidity and fine grain tannins that keep the palate fresh, vibrant and crisp. This food-friendly wine is ideal for light summer fare. Please serve chilled.
