Beautiful aromatics in this summertime delight, with grapes coming from a high-altitude, rocky hillside in Napa. Peachy fruit framed by ethereal floral notes. Clean, balanced, and refreshing flavors. Despite the high alcohol level and admirable depth of flavor, the wine itself is lighter than air on the palate. This is really well done by Olson Ogden. [Purchased at a great price during Barrel Tasting weekend. Normal retail price is probably closer to $30.] - HK 2012-07-10
