Product Description

The Wente selections grown on the loamy soil of Blocks 3 and 5 have smaller berries which give the wine a rich texture when young, and in time develop an oily, succulent mouthfeel. Both Blocks 1 and 2 are heavier soils and offer wines of a more robust character. The final blend offers intense fruit aromas of ripe pear and orange liqueur, complemented by a layer of toasty oak. Bright apple and citrus flavors give way to full-bodied texture and a long finish. Try with shellfish, cream soups, chicken, veal, or rich pasta dishes. It will gain complexity with additional cellaring for several years after release.
