A beautiful light gold color layered with aromas of white peach, clementine, candied fruit, jasmine tea, honeycomb, and a hint of pineapple guava. On the palate, the wine is complex, greeting you with finessed structure, boasting a well-balanced acidity. The soft, lingering finish is punctuated with flavors of peach, tangerine, lemon curd, marzipan, and a touch of minerality.
Southwest of St. Helena, in the Napa Valley is our 20 acre estate and winery. We are tucked in the foothills of the Mayacamas mountain range and surrounded by old-growth forests. The property was a part of the historic Bourn estate dating back to 1872 at the beginnings of winemaking in the Napa Valley.
