Santa Cruz Mountains
Almost crystal-clear in the glass with a touch of green, this bottling shows broad aromas of crisp asian pear, peach, squeezed lime and wet stone. There is a sharp texture and tension from sip to satisfying sip. The palate matches the aromas with elegant flavors of stone fruit, lime zest, and a unmistakable minerality that can only come from the Santa Cruz Mountains that is beautifully framed with striking acidity. Serve slightly chilled (45F) in a large Bordeaux stem.
