The wine opens with inviting aromas of fresh cream, melon and apricot, with subtle hints of honeysuckle, lemongrass, citrus and wet pebbles. A creamy texture and mouth-filling flavors of melon, star fruit and white peach are balanced by bright acidity. Pure, rich fruit flows through the lingering finish, leaving the palate enlivened and wanting more. This is a structured, elegant wine that grows in complexity in the glass.

2012 Vintage

Perfect abundance marked the 2012 growing season. Plentiful Spring rain filled our reserves, and there was no frost during the critical bloom phase. Summer brought a classic California weather pattern of alternating days of morning fog and sun that slowly brought the estate fruit to the perfect point of ripeness. Total yield over all varieties growing on the Spring Mountain Vineyard was 2.25 tons per acre, exceeding the 1.5 tons per acre norm, and making 2012 our most abundant harvest in twenty years.
