Tasting Notes: This wine opens with bright aromas of Meyer lemon and yellow apple, punctuated by hints of butterscotch and subtle floral notes. The palate adds flavors of juicy yellow plum, lemon curd and vanilla custard. Rich tropical tones and a lingering spice add richness and texture to the long, fresh finish.
Galaxy Notes: Aged 5 and 1/2 months in 20% new French and American oak. After a night of settling, the juice was racked, then most went into barrels. For bright fruit freshness, a small bit stayed in stainless steel. All experienced secondary malolactic fermentation and sur-lie aging—including hand-stirring every three or four weeks - helping to create our signature smooth flavors. Fruit came from vineyards across this diverse region, with different lots tended separately until blending to ensure an ideal balance. The result? Bright, citrus notes from the extreme Sonoma coast. Pear and melon from the Russian River. Stonefruit and minerality from Los Carneros and softness from Chalk Hill.
