The pale gold color hints at the covetable richness within. Expressive aromas of lemon curd and summer pears, cut with a surprising saline note, evoke visions of seaside picnics under a shade tree. Chamomile, baked apple, and tarragon swirl in the creamy texture, while keen citrus notes pull in the acidity.

Tasting Panel


From the Sebastopol Hills just ten miles from the Pacific, this striking white grown on Goldridge sandy loam soils exudes arresting aromas of vetiver, lemon curd, and summer pears. Chamomile, baked apple, and tarragon are enmeshed in the wine’s creamy nature, and keenly-linear citrus notes bring in high-toned acidity. The finish is surprisingly salty.
