The complex aroma blends stone fruit and almond and wet river stones.  The elegant palate is layered with nectarine, pear, quince honey, marzipan and flint.  The subtly creamy mouthfeel gives way to a fine minerality and persistent acid finish.  A wine of tremendous depth and elegance.

The 2012 Vintage repeated 2011's hot conditions, with warmer than usual nights accelerating the time of vintage several weeks advance of its usual timing.  The heat created intense flavors in the Chardonnay and it was picked earlier than previous years, enabling the retention of strong natural acidity and great freshness and length.  The Cabernet benefited from the moderating temperatures which arrived towards the end of vintage, developing intense fruit flavors with well ripened tannins, assuring great longevity.
