Ripe notes of pineapple, red apple and meyer lemon are enhanced with toasty oak, vanilla bean, marzipan, and peach. The palate opens with a fantastically weighty mouthfeel with rich flavors of pineapple juice, apple peel and blanched almonds with a creamy complexity balanced with a lemon pith-like structure. The finish streamlines with zesty acidity, giving this rich wine a clean and refreshing finish. Smuggle this bottle into a movie theater for that Rom-Com to pair with a bucket of popcorn. Or better yet, drink two bottles, watch the Notebook, and have a good cry.
