Brilliant gold in color with well-integrated and complex aromas of tropical fruit, peach, dried apricot, honey, and a light floral character balance by hints of coconut, vanilla, and toasted notes. Round palate with a full mouthfeel, excellent structure and balance.
2007 will be recorded by most as excellent though it is important to remember that not all grape varieties benefit from a hot, long, growing season. Bud-break was frost-free and flowering occurred under ideal calm. The summer and fall were seasonably warm and dry allowing for clean fruit and above average ripeness levels.
