A subtle nose of baked apples, roasted almonds, cooked lemons, orange blossom and sweet spices. Medium-bodied with a creamy core of generous fruit and a sweeter, comforting finish. Drink now.

Score: 90 | July 31, 2022 |

Marmalade, lemon curd and orange blossom notes are rich and bold, showing notes of honey, cream soda and spice on a generous frame, with a fresh thread of acidity keeping the flavors in focus. Drink now. 500 cases made.

Heady aromatics pierce through a full-figured sensibility of oak and body in this well-made wine—a partnership between the winery and musician John Legend. A gritty texture makes way for a length of baked pineapple and pear decadence that lingers effortlessly on the palate.
